I recently purchased 4 white showgirls (3 hens, 1 roo). Unfortuneately we had a mishap here and I lost the roo So now I am left with the three hens. I hatched out some of the eggs that they layed so I will have more breeding stock in 6 months. My first question is can I use one of the roos to breed to the hen? My second qustion is. Some of the chicks are showing up as plain silkies, no necked neck etc. The breeder I purchased them from said they will throw some silkies. These are not just first generation showgirls. So how long will it take to get just showgirls and no silkies or will a silkie always show up in the lines? So far I have gotten a few silkies. My three hens all have bowties and so did the Roo that I had but they were penned with a non bowtied Roo so I did get some without the bowtie. So my last question (for now anyway) is if I breed to a silkie roo (non bearded) how will that affect the outcome of silkie or showgirl chicks? Oh and I do have a pair of partridge showgirls that I was thinking of breeding the roo to the white hens, any idea what their outcome would be? Would their be a market for thoses? Ahh all these questions !!! Sorry !!
