    It seems the feathers growing out are normal and not silkie : < but still I really want to see what these Silkie/Marans will look like :3

    Omg!! He is adorable!! Maybe after he's all grown up, if you cross him with a Silkie, you might get the feathers you want...just a thought! [​IMG]

    I don't quite see the excitement with the silkies. Are there eggs larger and sweeter of just what is the attraction?

    Silkie eggs are small small, I love them cause of the way they look. I love how fluffy they are, and make great brooders/mothers. I just really enjoy that breed of chicken <3

    Whew! It been about 6 months from my last post about Thor!
    Thor was part of a nice group of 16 chicks, and I sold 13 of them and kept 3 which were half Silkie/Maran.
    Than it turn out Thor is a hen and not a rooster! Oh gosh! But one of the other 3 I kept was but sadly he pass away from an unknown reason, but I now still have Thor and her sister who hasn't gotten a name yet, but she was the last one to hatch out of the 16!
    Sadly their mother Silkie Mama has pass away from getting sick after it got cold and rainy. I'm very upset about that, she was my only silkie :(

    RIP Silkie Mama.

    I love how fluffy they look! Thor has that lovely gold and bread! While her sister all blackish with no bread. They are just really cool and cute looking chicken! :D
    But sadly I lost the mother so now I need to try and get some more silkies if I can. I really hope I can T_T !!! I really want to breed more of these cool guys.
