This is something I have been thinking about most the night for some reason. I love silkies. But I am not a fan of bantams at all. I have seen a few standard silkies for sale in my day but they are extremely rare here in the states. So I have been thinking. If I tried to start my on flock of standard silkies what would be the best method. Breeding Silkie to standard cochin? Then take those silkie chicks and breed back to standard cochin? then take those silkie chicks breed back to silkies? and keep going back and fourth unitl I get correct feathering, size, feet, skin color? What would be everyone opinions for this?
