    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.

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