Silkie X Barred Rock

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

One thing I love about this place is that someone here has already done what others want to try...so I am wondering if anyone has pictures of the outcome of a silkie over a barred rock hen that I can see:>)
Please post them!
Thanks a bunch!

Well, almost. This hen's sire was a Cochin/Silkie cross. Her mother was a Barred Rock.

The green is the typical sheen a black bird will have in the feathers, not because of the breed. My black Ameraucanas have that as well.
