Hi All, I thought I would start a thread for silkie feathered easter eggers. I have seen a few people have been lucky to have this pop up in thier lines as I have. I have a silkie feathered hen that I hatched last spring from my stock of easter eggers. Hoping there are more people out there that would like to compare notes, and share about this. So far this year I have hatched 6 chicks with the silkie type feathering. Now keep in mind I have NOT crossed my birds with the breed of silkies, these birds have no traits of a silkie. I have no idea how the gene got in to the line but it is there.
