    So we just hatched a new chick last night that is a cross between a white silkie mom and a rooster we bought at a flea market as a chick, so im not to sure what he really is. So what i was wondering if what can i expect this chick to grow up to look like, does anyone have any pictures of their silkie cross breads so i can have some sort of idea. Thanks so much!!

    I would assume white will be white, yellow will turn buff/gold/red, and the black should be interesting! Definitely keep us all updated as this one grows, can't wait to see! [​IMG]

    I had a white silkie Roo X RIR (white w/red leakage) and Silkie Roo * GLW (lased or dbl laced)

    These guys are broody, but the RIR less then two of the three GLW, wonder if pappa or mamma controlled broodyness...
