    Polish would be the best. Modern game might work too.

    Silkies are bantams, so whatever bantam breed you mix with them, you will be mixing bantams with bantams. Silkies are a very gentle breed, so I would recommend mixing them with other gentle bantam breeds like Pekins (Cochins), Polish, or Brahmas.
