This is my Silkie crossed with Americauna. I bought her a few days ago. She is tiny compared to my other silkies. Here are her pics. Can you guys tell she is a cross?

wow that looks almost totally silkie too me, with a smaller head pouf and less feathers on its feet? Pretty cute, almost makes me want to do some experimenting. Do you know what color both of the parents were?

If it is half Ameraucana, The father was the Silkie, the mother was the Ameraucana. And the mom had to have one copy of the hookless gene.
