    If you mate your NN hen, after she is old enough, to your silkie rooster the next generation will give you showgirls. Showgirls are NN silkies and they are popular, unique and have more of the urge to be broody from their silkie side of the breed. Actually any rooster bred with a NN will eventually make NN chicks if bred back to the NN hen. In other words after her chicks grow up breed the males back to the mother. This is how it is done and called in-line breeding.

    But on the other hand, look for NN roosters in your area. Usually you can find a thread for where ever you live in the "Where are you threads"

    NNs are usually good layers but this time of year with short daylight hours hens take time off to regenerate. How old is your hen ?

    I would really love pictures of a NN chick with beard plus tufts.... I regret not saving to disk pictures of pure NN with tufts. Did not get to combine tufts, beard with NN though, will live vicariously though your hatches. ;)


    a rumpless NN with a full size crest would be really something..!


    as for the other question, only have pair of O-shamo, a trio of silver sussex and 30 NN.
