    this has to be one of my favorite chicks.. I think its a roo but still not certain.
    its got silkie skin and some silkie type feathers but mostly conforms to cochin size and type. so my question is how to reproduce this type of bird?
    I have read about the sizzle but it seems more of a silkie type bird with regular feathers not the silkie fluff. Also if this bird turns out to be a roo can I breed a LF cochin to a silkie? Seems that he'd be too large and injure the hens..
