This project is designed to create giant fluffy chickens.

Who doesn't love Silkies, & wish they had some the size of Brahmas?

I have both Silkies, & Brahmas, color patterns isn't a concern until Silkie feathering, 5 toes, & black skin are produced.

I'll only be using my largest Silkie cockerels/roosters to breed with my Brahmas.

Pictures of my large Silkie cockerels.

First Boy is next to a Bantam Silkie cockerel for size comparison.

Keep the Broodiness. A Silkie wouldn't be a Silkie without that trait.
So you’re trying to maintain the bandstand silkie qualities as much as possible but increase the size? Have you seen the broiler silkies? I’m trying to remember what thread was discussing those... They had silkied feathers but the feathers looked shorter, and the body size was bigger... Found a link!

Yes, I have a couple broiler silkies.
I'll still look at the article you posted though.
