    I'm posting pics of my chicks I get from this cross. I'm using just one pair that are pictured below also. I'll be adding pics as they grow.

    The parents are
    Roo - Turbo
    Hen - Little Spike

    I used imageshack for the pics and I don't know how to get the pic to show instead of just a link. I could use a little instruction here if anybody has any.

    In advance, I can't use photobucket because it takes way too long to load.

    I reposted the pics. Thanks for the help

    cute babies!! for pic upload go to "my uploads" on the top bar. Hit browse, and go to your pictures you have stored on your computer, click one and hit upload. Once it is in your uploads copy and paste the image code onto your post. Sounds harder than it is. [​IMG]

    Here is a couple of the older ones. Now the two black ones are full blooded silkies and one of the white ones is pure Americauna. I have more pics but haven't gotten them sent from my phone yet.

    The top of her head is grey. The pics don't show that. She has 5 toes and black skin like the roo and she is colored like the hen.

    The two up front are the cross and the white one in back is Americauna.

    These hatched yesterday. Still have one more i'm waiting on. The yellow with strip down it's back is an Americauna. The others are the cross.

    I would like to get less of the silkie look so I'm guessing i'll have to cross Americauna back in with these chicks. I'd like to get the slate legs, 4 toes and the size of the Americauna. Is that what I need to do?
