Is he a Silkie mix? Or pure Silkie?

    This is my 5 month old baby roo named Bandit. He's black with gold neck feathers. Is he a cross? If he is, I can't tell what he's crossed with. He's the first Silkie we ever owned. My niece's boyfriend found the little guy in their front yard when he was only a week old, and we adopted him! [​IMG]

    Just curious!

    he's definitely a silkie cross. silkies have feathers that are more like fur. he might be mixed with something game.
