    I have a Red Sex Link hen named Dove, who just started laying (For me. Not her first time laying). I also have a black Silkie rooster named Leonard, and he has been doing the "mating dance" ,but not actually doing the duty, for 5 days now. He started crowing 2 days ago as well. Leonard REALLY likes Dove and I'm wondering if anyone has ever crossed these two breeds. I want to see pictures of the cross but I can't find any. Leonard is almost a standard size Silkie. Big enough for Dove lol.

    The chicken calculator can help you. The calculator in the link has options for the silkie feathering, walnut comb, etc. Just hover over the different variables at the bottom to see what they are about.

    Basically you'll get a 50% black and 50% white birds with variations on comb.
