The eggs I received/incubated from a friend were either white silkies or white silkie Bhrama cross. The legs of these chicks remind me of a Bhrama but the feathers look silkie-ish ;) All have 5 toes, darker skin. What are your thoughts on the breed of these 3 chicks? And any thoughts on gender? They are 6 weeks old but I know this breed is tough to sex.

White Silkies. Too young to sex.

A Brahma and Silkie cross would have smooth feathering.
