i have my barred rocks seprate from my silkies but, the silkie rooster made a way over into the other pen and breed some of my BR hens. so i took in all the BR eggs outside and put them in the incubator (4 eggs). at hatch date only two of those hatched, and one was a silkie barred rock mix! so, after that hatched i threw some more of her eggs (6) in the incubator with 16 other eggs. hoping for a good hatch BTW: i love the little chick, i will try to get piccs but i have a new camera and no idea how to upload photos.
