    well the cuteness of the silkie feathering would be gone.

    depending on the type of cross(Silkie male over OEG hen, or OEG male over a Silkie Hen).

    a Male silkie over a OEG hen would give you Black skined pullets and white skined males, they would be sex links, you would be able to tell them apart at hatch..

    a Male OEG over a silkie hen would not give you sex links, all of them would have white skin
