Meet Chad, the hen in question. She's approximately 15 weeks old and we "rescued" her and the rest of our flock after being hatched at an elementary school. This is our first time raising chickens and are learning as we go! With the head poof, dark skin, feathered legs, grayish beak and legs, I think she's at least part Silkie. But as you can see she has long smooth feathers and a very upright tail. I've come across the terms "satin" and "smooth" - do you think any of those apply to her? What breed would you refer to her as? We're not breeding, I'm just curious and want to get my facts straight!
