    Wondering what mix breed this lovely little hen is? We were told she was a silkie cross? But wondering with what!
    She is bigger than a bantam, but smaller than a regular hen.

    Silkie cross might be as close as you get. Do you know what other breeds of birds the people had (and thats only if they had bred her)
