    Hi everyone and Merry X'mas. Now been thinking for a while and since I'm new to this group thought what a brilliant place to ask this question. Now how are bearded silkies developed? There's a small number of bearded silkies in NZ and have always wondered how they got established over here. Are they a mix of a siljie with a houdan, Polish or aruacana? :)

    Hi there and :welcome
    Bearded silkies are just another type of silkies.
    There are bearded and non bearded types.
    So there is no cross breeding.
    Just different types of the Same breed.
