    About 2 weeks old we were told it would be silkie or silkie cross but none of the chicks we got looked like a silkie at all. Can you tell me what it looks like?[​IMG][/IMG]

    It looks to me like a mixed breed with some Silkie in it.

    I'm not sure we did not get any silkie or silkie cross. We got 2 of each and we hatched them. I might try find out more but I don't thinks its a silkie. We had 8 in total

    I believe it is a Silkie cross also. I believe Silkies have black legs.

    It has some of the hairlike feathers that are unique to Silkies, so there is some Silkie in it, but those wing feathers and yellow legs are definitely not Silkie.
