    [​IMG]Hi all I'm from the UK and new to this site. My 3rd hen is this silkie cross called bowie.
    Any idea what she is crossed with ?
    I think she's stunning :)

    It's usually almost impossible to determine what other breed is used in a Silkie cross, as the Silkie genes are all very dominant.

    Being as you're in the UK, I think your hen is a Goldtop. It's a sex link cross between a silkie and a Sussex.
