Looking for some help re type. Looking to breed a standard size silkie, what breed would be most in line with silkie type to do the first crosses? I have been thinking brahma or cochin would make the most sense since they share a lot of traits, but might there be another large breed that would be more in line with the silkie type. My end goal, many years down the road, would be to have all the silkie features/type but that is standard size around 8 pounds for cockerels. I have even been considering adding in some leghorn/RIR to increase egg production. Any insight into type would be very helpful.
