    Well, not the first. But it will be fun to see a SQ Silkie crossed with a Bared Rock! My Barred Rock went broody. Who wants to see Barred rock Silkie crosses? [​IMG]

    This is going to be weird..

    Don't mean to crash the party but I doubt you're the first [​IMG]


    They'll be medium in size, depending who's dad and who's mom they'll all be barred or only the males will be barred, the rest will be mostly black with either white or gold markings/leakage. They'll have semi-dark skin, five toes, and a small crest, but no Silkied feathering. Just normal feathers.


    As a heads up [​IMG]

    I am hoping she is female. She does have some silkie feathers. I want to breed her back to a silkie roo and try to keep the pretty orangy color. Any one know a good color to breed her back to?
