post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What would a Buff Silkie cross a Mottled Cochin bantam look like? Has anyone hatched any Silkie/Cochin mixes?

Howdy beetandsteet I have a Silkie X Pekin [Cochin bantam].  She is not mottled but I am happy to share a picture if you wanted to see the look/stature etc but colour-wise, she is just buff.

Her name is Crystal and she has 5 toes, as mentioned, she is Silke X Pekin and was hatched here.  She has a Frizzle sister but being Frizzle, it is kind of hard to see anything except a mass of feathers  ;)

 

Crystal: She is 6 weeks old in this one:

 

 

10 weeks:
