    Has anyone attempted a lavender Orpington too over a white silkie hen cross before? Have pictures? I'm wanting to try this and just curious if anyone has before.

    I’m wondering the same. My gigantic lavender roo has a crush on my little white silkie. She laid her first egg today so now I’m getting curious.

    Silkies are recessive white, and lavender is also recessive. I would guess that in the first generation you would produce black birds with crests, beards, walnut combs, five toes, and black skin. They won't have silkie feathers, which are recessive.
