Hello there and welcome to BYC!
I have no idea here. There will be others stopping by to welcome you to BYC. Hopefully they can answer this question for you.
Good luck with your breeding projects and welcome to our flock!
I am not at all acquainted with this mix, I assumed it was a gold crested polish.
Hello and Welcome To BYC! You might want to ask in the Silkie thread https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/297632/silkie-thread It shouldn't matter if the hen is bantam or large fowl as long as she is silver based, just would depend on what size you are breeding for. For a sex link dad has to be gold based (silkie) and the female silver based bird (sussex). The female chicks will inherited the gold from the dad and the boys will look silver (white) like their mum. White Silkies (are a gold based white usually) or Reds, Buffs or gold Partridge I think are used also for dads. I can't find a thread on them in general, there are a couple talking about breeding them https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/425998/goldtop-boy-or-girl

I've bred a gold top before off a light Sussex and gold silkie so I know how to sex the chicks, but does anyone know if you bred a male and female goldtop, what the chicks are like and how to sex them?
