Can't have that in my apartment so back outside he went. At least he doesn't get very dirty.

I think if you mix any thing with a silkie that dose not have the silked feathers you will get someting with hard featers and not silked. So mixing the silkie and polish would not give you a bird with the same kind of feathers a silkie has.

I know that wink.png You need to bring breed back to silkie to get it. So I would have to do polishXsilkie, then MixXsilkie, then back to polish again and silkie again. I will need a few more silkies, preferably black.

 

I can cross them all back to the same roo after a couple generations.

No, that isn't entirely true.  You will get a mix of things.  When we breed frizzled cochins to silkies we get 4 feather types in the F1 crosses.  Frizzled silkie feathers, regular silkie feathers, smooth hard feathers, or frizzled hard feathers.  So without the frizzled gene, you can still get silkied feathers.  As far as the patterning, that I am less certain of, but they are getting silkies with columbian patterns, so I can't rule out the reverse paint that ChickNHerps is talking about.  In fact, that might be a thread to ask on.  I think there is a thread for it...that or "silkies of a different color" thread.  However, you are both right, you will have to breed back in the pure silkie to sustain the feathers for a few generations.

It is looking awfully roo-like to me.  Those red wattles are awfully big for a 9 week old girl.

I'd agree. The tail looks pretty boyish too.

I had a friend who told me something about being able to tell the males from the females when they are very young by the way the shape of the crest is at birth.  Does anyone know what she meant and can show me a photo of each?
