    I just got three new birds, I have no idea what breed they are - anyone else? The one I'm posting a pic of is supposedly the mama, she's fairly small (but not tiny), a little smaller than my hamburg. The two others are similar in coloring but have no "hat" on, and one has more brown on her back than the other. Their black feathers shine green, blue, and purple - they're really very pretty girls.

    Any idea? I'd appreciate the input.

    Oh, I almost forgot - the other two are only six weeks old or so.

    No clue, but I'm no expert. I will say a unique looking bird.

    holy smokes, they do look a lot alike! mine all have five toes, that's a silkie trait, no? i think they must be some kind of silkie cross. they're cutie pies, whatever they are - i hope they'll lay lots of eggs... i'll keep posting pix as the lil ones get bigger.
