    Could you get a full body picture? It is probably a Silkie mix.

    Here are full body pictures. You can see the other one too. It (he?) Has a different looking head and is a littler smaller. They both have three or four orange streaks on a few feathers.

    They have four toes. Does one look like a rooster?

    Is that a Svart Hona? Swedish black hen? I'm just learning about these so I'm no expert.

    almost looks like svart hona except for the one with the crest, but i doubt tractor supply will be selling them cheap if any at all

    I'm dealing with the same black chick at home! Purchased from TSC and is completely black, except for a few faint brown feathers like you said. Mines not near as large as yours though.
