    Is this a non related breeding pair? If so I would like to bid $60. Thanks

    I did not breed these, they were hatched from purchased eggs. I believe they came from a large breeding pen with multiple roosters and hens. I feel certain they at least came from different hens. I can't say for certain how closely related they are.

    Dutch silkies are just Silkies that were imported from the Netherlands, they are bred to a different standard, usually have a smaller top knot, and they come in Bantam and Standard sizes, unlike the American Silkie.

    These are Bantams.
