    Okay, I am putting in more pictures that I just took of my little black unknown chick. I posted one picture last night and someone said they suspect it's a silkie cross, which is what I have been suspecting all along because of the baby's personality and the way it's feathers are coming in. This is absolutely the most gentle bird I have. I think it's a girl because the other two chicks I got that lived that are the same age both have their combs coming in, and Phantom doesn't. So the first few pics are of Phantom. Can someone tell me what he/she is? The other pics are of the other two TSC chicks that I got with Phantom. I suspect the tan one is a d'Uccle, and the brown and gold one is an OEGC. But if someone else knows for sure, let me know. And can you tell the sexes from these pics? Thanks everyone!

    Here are my suspects for d'Uccle and OEGC:

    I have another one too that looks like the little gold one, except it has a rose comb. I thought that one was a sebright? This baby has a straight comb. Am I guessing wrong?

    The first one is definitely silky cross, with those toes and feathers.

    Number one is a silkie cross, primarily silkie. The second one is a Mille Fleur D'Uccle, probably a pullet, and i don't know on the third, but looks like you got some answers on that one.
