    Well I know I have seen a thread for mix breeds but I couldn't seem to find one when I looked!! So I decided to make a new one!! So here it is! Post pictures of you strangest looking mixes, tell stories, tell us about mix breeding, and we can discuss what we think the outcome will be when mixing breeds!!
    And I will be the first to ask a question!! I want to breed my Dominique with my blue silkie hen!! What would it come out as!!

    I am working on project birds right now and will post some pics soon of the results so far..
    I am also building up a layer flock of mixed chickens alot of them will have the blue gene so mix from my mix should be interesting.Also lots of blue/green egg gene in there as well.

    WCB Polish/Black Silkie Mixes. 5 toes, light leg feathering, baby crests, ugly combs [​IMG] The roosters from this mix ALWAYS have the golden streaks for whatever reason lol

    Yeah, they're different [​IMG] one of my standard WCB Polish roosters prefers a black silkie hen for whatever reason, so these crosses were made [​IMG] i think the hens from this are pretty, the roosters look like someone stuck a wad of chewed up gum on their face [​IMG]

    Quote:Probably normal feathered, since silkiness is recessive, 5 toed, color is up in the air, since it can be so varied, and the comb, also could be varied. [​IMG]
