    I have MANY new chicks from my Dominique hens crossed with a gold Silkie Roo. (Someone PALEEZE take some of these biddies off my hands!). Any who... what would be a good name for the cross? Silkinique? Dominilkies? Ha ha. I'm giving a free chick for the best name!

    I have no clue, hubby named our Cochin/Orpington crosses "Orchins"

    Got Pics? I was thinking of crossing silver spangled hamburgs with barred rocks and calling them "STARS and STRIPES" [​IMG]

    Could you possibly post a few pics of the chicks? It's hard to name something when not being able to see what it looks like. Sounds like a cute cross, though! Congrats!!

    I do like the sound of DoSilkies or Dosilks, though... [​IMG]

    Or you could go a completely different route & name them Gossamers! [​IMG]

    Or - since no one in other states have named these crosses yet... you could go with Georgia Silks or another word for a fabric that's made of silk is, taffeta. ?!?!

    Yep... just thinking out loud here... *haha*... so what's my list:

    DoSilkies
    Dosilks
    Gossamers
    Georgia Silks
    Taffetas

    I'm a nut when it comes to naming things! [​IMG]

    Ok... my project for the day is to snap some pics of my grown crossed chicks. They are very different from each other. Keep those ideas coming!

    Now I'm thinking too much... *lol*... I can't stop myself.

    Doserice
    DomSerice
    ('serice' is an old term used for Chinese Silk - China was believed to have originated the Silkie breed)


    OK... I'm done! [​IMG]
