100% positive she's from a small hatch of only 5 maybe 6 can't quite remember, I was a little disappointed it didn't show many characteristics, except the white.

And you're 100% sure the father was the silkie? Is it possible there is anot her rooster? Because with the rooster you had the picture of, his offspring should at least have a small crest, darkish skin, a weird shaped comb, and even a small amount of leg feathers. I don't see any of these things...do you have a better picture?

1 splash silkie rooster, 1 splash silkie hen, 1 blue silkie hen, 2 EE hens, RIR, buff orpington, blue orpington, barred rock, SLW, a few silkie/EE mixes

Btw, the names Andrew, if my username doesn't make sense...

100% sure. I only had one hen laying which was the mother and only one father to fertilize. The only other chickens were White Leghorn Pullets, of which were not laying. One of the offsprings did have feathered feet, but was trampled to death in the brooder, I was infuriated!
