  2. Hi! She's a beauty! If you pair her with a Silkie roo, the offspring will be all regular feathered ...
    *UNLESS* she has Silkie in her background and is carrying the silkie feather gene.
    IF she is carrying the silkie feather gene, a % of the chicks might inherit frizz and silkie feathering (and I find that unattractive).
    Half the chicks should be NN and half feather neck.
    She's just a dumpling!
