    I have a white silkie roo that I'm hoping to breed with my mix of girls. Wondering what I will be looking at in the future. Hoping to see what you guys have.

    I don't have any but usually black skin, feathered feet and extra toes. But usually very cute!

    all crosses will come out looking different because of the gene pool but the pics can show what you can expect from the silkie crosses. i should be getting some silkie x d'uccle mixes around feb. and i cant wait [​IMG]
