    hey everybody! new to the group and new to chickens! my husband and i just bought a place in the country and just recently (three weeks or so ago) we were awakened by the sound of a rooster crowing. did not think much about it until it continued daily and the rooster ended up under our bedroom window. we are animal suckers, i mean lovers, so when he decided to stick around we got some food and water, my husband built him a box and a swing. like i said, animal suc...errr, lovers.
    after a small amount of research, we thought he was a silkie. but now, after seeing the incredible variety of birds out there, we really don't know what he may be. his visible skin is black - face, comb, wattle, legs. his feathers are, in fact, silky in appearance. i am going to attempt to post a picture with this post. (by the way, somehow we ended up with 11 chicks since chuck the rooster showed up. i'm sure i'll be posting lots more!)

    He is definitely a Silkie cross, I'm not sure with what though.

    He just appeared at your house right?
    It may take him some time to adjust..or he may just be a meanie.
