[mention]danathome [/mention]Oh shoot- yes you’re so right, mixed with that title that was an even more horrid typo!!
So, figured I’d just post here cause we are already chatting etc.
I think the baby poofy (Cochin) is silkie feathered. No really! None of them so far have any hard edges. I’ll post the pics I’ve got that illustrate it, but I’d like a look from someone who has had silkied feathers before- to see if I’m nuts or if hers are just abnormally soft edged !
What do you think? Is she an exceptionally fluffy chick that hasn’t gotten hard edges, or could there be some silkie in there somewhere that you know of? I’m really really intrigued by this chick now! Lol
She’s (and so far her comb has not grown any more either so fingers crossed still) a neat little thing- she’s got a different look to her than the boys did (duh different genes lol) and she’s super super soft and fluffy feathered thus far. The poofy boys both got hard edged feathers right away- but all her feathers have stayed fluff, start to tip.
Sorry I started that earlier and forgot to post!
