    We are trying to decide on a rooster to keep with our mixed laying flock and I suggested putting in a Silkie roo so I can hatch a few of the eggs. I have seen some photos of pretty Silkie cross-breeds. I already searched the forum and saw some pictures, but want to see more. Please show me pictures of yours. Silkies mixed with anything--tell me what it is mixed with if you know.

    Has anyone ever mixed a Silkie and Easter Egger? Silkie and Black Sex Link? These are the ones I think may look strange mixed with a Silkie roo. I think my other hens will make cute babies with a Silkie roo. We are mostly going to eat the eggs from this pen and give them to family, but I am interested in hatching some just to get pretty mutt pets.

    I'd love to see pics too...pretty please...[​IMG]

    All of my chickens run together and I have a Silkie roo, Sizzle roo and RIR roo. If we hatch out any of our eggs, I have no idea what to expect! Well actually, I expect to have mostly RIR mutts, since he's obviously the Alpha...LOL.

    Txmom, the Sizzle in your avatar photo is a beauty. Just about every Silkie cross I have seen up to now has been pretty!

    The mom was one of my broody bantams, in with the Seramas. She was a silkie ameraucana cross. I used her b/c she laid green eggs, and I could leave them in there, collect the Serama eggs and let her go broody. She was killed, and I hatched out her last egg. The dad was Serama Sammy..

    Quote:I like the name you made up for the mix. (I assume you just made it up.) She is pretty! I love the small crest on her head.
