    Neighbor got them at Tractor Supply. She says they are bantams, but what kind? They are growing feathers on their legs

    Some, but not all have extra toes I sure hadn't thought of Silkies

    Yeah they don't seem to have crests so it's strange [​IMG] is probably something obvious I can't put my finger on at the moment.

    Probably hatchery-quality Silkies.

    Good eyes. We shall see. Yes, I catch the hatchery quality note, but neighbor was not capable of caring for them, they needed to be rescued. I think they will be fine pets

    most likely hatchery silkies - what color skin do they have?

    If I had to bet money I'd say buff silkies. What state where they bought in? If you find out what hatchery they came from it might be a little easier to compare them.
