Two chicks for Miss Silkie

On October 5th, to our amazement, Mama Silkie hatched one of her eggs! I didn't think anything would come of this because she rather randomly collected eggs and was so young. She had 6 eggs total and on October 10th a second one hatched! The two chicks look completely different. We know they are half silkie because we let her sit on only silkie eggs but the roosters are of three different breeds.
