    Do you sometimes get a silkie instead of a showgirl. Out of 5 showgirl eggs I hatched, 1 is not naked necked, looks like pure silkie.
    How often does this happen with showgirls? I was sort of thinking that I had read that sometimes you would get a silkie but it would carry the naked neck gene? I'm new to showgirls so any info will really be helpful. Looks like all 5 are buff or partridge as some are buff colored and some are a darker buff/orangish color. I also hatched 1 golden polish with frizzle gene, 4 spangled butchers and 2 hatch/greys. 1 hatch/grey is still in the incubater alive in egg but not yet broken the air cell.

    Thanks fo any info, Jennifer

    Anyone????

    Surely someone has hatched some showgirls before.

    Thanks, Jennifer
