    We went chick shopping this morning and came across to really cool little chicks. We cant find any pictures online that look like it. He/she has feathered feet and the legs are a dark color. He also has a afro on his head. Any guesses on what he may be. When I reached my hand in he was the first to come out.
    The chicks came from Ideal and they are bantams if that helps narrow it down

    I think it's a silkie. My silkies looked like that as chicks.

    Quote:What color skin does it have?
    It might just be a poorly bred silkie, or a partridge cochin.

    I don't think it'd be a partridge cochin...mainly because of the crest growth.
