    She is definitely silkied or hookless feathered. Silkie feathers are silkie in appearance because they lack the barbs in the webbing that a normal or smooth feather does.

    I have a silkie cochin cross and it has feathered feet and a top notch of hair with cochin feathering. How many toes does she have?

    It looks like a silkie cochin cross, more cochin than silkie, except for the feathering. She is very pretty!
