    My new Silkish Polkie I got on Saturday. She is not looking her best here, she is missing feathers, half her headdress, her wing feathers are cut off, and she had lice when I got her.

    Her and her man. Im hoping to get some ridiculous looking chicks from these guys. He is also in rough shape and is missing a ton of feathers.

    WOW.. those should be some great babies!!
    I am crossing a blue splash silkie with an EE, with a GL polish, and other silkies.
    I have a cross bred roo (wcbp/slw) I am hoping crosses to a buff lace polish hen.
    I also have a blue cochin bantam roo who has a golden sebright as a girlfriend.. so those could be some interesting chicks!!

    She is BEAUTIFUL!!! [​IMG] If you do get chicks from those two, you should post some pictures! They'd be so CUTE! xD

    OKAY.
    This will sound REALLY dumb, but...

    Is that a real breed, or a mix? Because I have a hen that looks EXACTLY like yours, and I always just guessed that she was a blue Cochin mix... Hm. Haha, sorry!

    Quote:Haha, no, its not a real breed. She is supposed to be a polish/silkie cross. Im not 100% on the polish part, because I would think that she would have more feathers on her head if she was. But that is what I was told. She is in rough shape, so maybe once her feathers start growing back out. [​IMG] I am hoping that if they have chicks, the blue carries through to some of them. I dont know the genetic percentage of getting blue if one of the parents arent black though.
