    Has anyone crossed a Quail bantam with a brown silkie? If so please send a picture. Mine are really cute. It seems like a very good cross.
    I really didn't know what to expect at first.

    They are adorable. Would they possibly be infertile though?

    We had a Silkie/ mutt mix and it was a great bird! Pretty top hat but a more capable mover/flyer than a Silkie.

    Quote:These are Antwerp Belgian Bantams or Barbu d'Anvers that are most known for their Quail color pattern, though they come in other colors. Sometimes they are just called "Quail Bantams":

    On a side note: quail x chickens hybrids do exist.
