    I am looking at picking up a pullet that is a giant Jersey and Silkie mix. Was just wondering if anyone out there has a laying hen of this mix? If so, do you have a picture to share? What kind of egg production do they have (how many per week, size, color, etc.)?

    Would love to hear from you. Thanks.

    Sorry. We haven't tried a Jersey Giant/Silkie mix yet. We usually do lots of crosses with Ameraucana. We have tons Ameraucana crosses if you want to see some let me now :)

    That would probably be very interesting! Is it a full size Silkie or bantam that is crossed?

    I am not sure if it was a bantam or not. The lady just sent me pictures and it has the body like a GJ and all black (only smaller body size) and it has the silkie head. It's got a bunch of "fuzzies" on the back too. It is only 3-1/2 months old right now, so I think it will look a little different in a couple of months. It is strangely cute! I have decided to include this one along with my EE and EE/Delaware mix. Should make for an interesting group of girls. :) Will be fun to see what it looks like as an adult and what kind of eggs it lays.
