    This little pullet was hatched in August. Her name is Priscilla. Her mother was a Silver Phoenix hen who was also a very good broody mother, and her father was a cross between a Blue Silkie hen and an 'American' Onagadori father. Isn't she lovely? She looks almost like a full Phoenix besides the little Silkie Beard and the little dough eyed Silkie look in her face, as well as the earlobes. She doesn't have the extra toes or feathered feet either.

    Just wanted to share. [​IMG]
