    I have a question...
    What are the chances that a crested silkie and game bantam cross offspring will have a crested head. Will the offspring look more silkie or more game?

    All my silkie x chicks have had a tuff on their heads. It wont be a full crest like the silkie, though, and they will not have silkie feathers unless the game bantam cross is crossed with a silkie.
