Orpington - Silkie Cross? - Page 2

post #11 of 12

Ok this is an old thread but still - I have some Orp/silkie crosses from my black Orptington rooster (now sadly deceased) and partridge silkie hen, they aren't fully feathered yet but appear to be straight black (regular feathering). They have indeed five toes and a bit of feather fluff on the legs, and also a dark colored, silkie type comb. Two of them are growing quite long tails so I take it those are the boys, they may develop a nice big rooster tail - my Orp rooster had hardly any tail at all. They are absolutely healthy and fine, no problem about the size disparity. Will post some pics. Not sure if they'll have a tuft on head, but I reckon I'll find out in a few weeks!

I have buff Oringtons x Blue silkie cross. Here is the picture.
Helena is a lighter Buff.


This one is from Harriett, with the same blue silkie roo. Harriett is a darker buff.
