    It would pass on the color, but also the breed. So it would be a cochin/silkie.

    You'd just get mutts. Mostly black with gold markings on them, but they won't be fuzzy like Silkies.

    Silkie feathering is a recessive trait, you'd only get it if you bred the offspring of the cross back to the Silkie parent or if you bred the offspring to each other.
