Hey y'all! I am currently working on breeding a bird that looks exactly like a silkie that will also lay colored eggs (green/blue and eventually dark brown). I just hatched out 9 chicks from my black (with a tiny bit of yellow leakage) Easter egger over my bearded silkie hen. I will be using all or some of them for further breeding. I need to know what I should be looking for in these babies as they grow so I can pick the best ones to breed! I will be breeding them back to a silkie when they are of age. Should I be looking for darkest skin, leg feathering, 5 toes, beards? I want my cross to look like a silkie and lay colored eggs like a EE or welsummer. I need y'alls help figuring out what I need to look for in my new babies!! Thanks!
