    Well I came across this website that breed Pekins and Silkies, so they cross silkies with Pekins. What do you think? Why are the head feathers like that?
    And where do I find the Cochin thread?

    The head feathers come from the silkie crest. I have some black ones that look like that, they are very pretty. Mine were supposed to be pure silkie, They are very pretty, the feathers look very soft.

    They are so cute! [​IMG] If I were to let some of my silkies hatch eggs they would end up looking like that! I have silkie hens and a banty cochin roo. [​IMG] I was wondering what they'd look like. Thanks for posting! You should put up more pictures lol. They are adorable. [​IMG]

    Yes; in the United States, Pekins are called Cochins. Kind of confusing, huh?
