    I have been incubating eggs for about a year now... But here recently I have rescued two new silkies and now have a 'Silkie coop' for them. The hen is 100% Silkie while the Roo is 50% Silkie and 50% Black Copper Maran ... He looks like a 100% Silkie he just doesn't have 5 toes. Well after the hen laid some eggs and after 20-21 days the babies hatched! The only issue is.... I don't know what breed they are! They have 4 toes, their feet have feathers on them and their heads aren't bushy like silkies are... I looked up what a Black Copper Maran chick looks like and they look nothing like what I have! Can someone help me? [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
