    may or may not be "silkie" feathered

    may or may not have more than 4 toes

    will have a walnut shaped comb

    will have black/dark skin

    if your silkie is bearded, the baby would most likely be bearded too

    if female, could possibly lay green eggs

    feather color is going to be tricky because of how the color genes act with one another

    It will be somewhere inbetween, I think.. That's how the bantam/standard crosses have turned out for me. It will definitely be taller than mama. Either way, it will be a pretty thing! [​IMG] Good luck!
