    hey everyone

    my hen is a silkie sussex cross and i was wondering what the correct name was?

    her mom was a light sussex and her dad was a buff silike
    she has the body of a sussex but she is black with buff colouring around her neck and she has a tuft of hair instead of a comb and she doesnt have any wattles

    thanks

    Really, if one thing is crossed to another, there's no name besides a A x B, or "mutt," or "crossbred," etc [​IMG] - Sex Links and Easter Eggers have such names because they're well known crossings with certain parents.

    because her dad was buff and mom was silver it would be called a SEX-LINK

    On a british site about chickens.There was a discussion about the silkie/sussex cross. It is a sex link and they had a name for them, I think they call them golden tops or something similiar,not sure about the name. I will see if can find that.
