    I was just thinking what kind of birds I am going to get here in the spring.
    My BO roos mate with my silkie pullets right now. The silkies will be laying eggs soon.
    I am trying to picture what they will look like. Will they be silkie size or larger?
    Anyone have any and if so can you post a pic?

    If you mate a bantam with a large fowl (standard) sized bird, the chicks will be an inbetween size. Sorry, I don't know what the chicks will look like, but I look forward to anyone who does. [​IMG]

    I figured they would be in between. I wonder what they will look like. [​IMG]
