Earlier this summer I hatched an egg from a friend flock. The chick (a male) is coming up on 5 weeks now, and is very interesting in his color. I do not have pictures yet, but his color/pattern means little in terms of my question. He is the progeny of an OEGB (father) and a F2 Silkie cross (mother). The mother is almost entirely silkie feathered, and our little guy is normal feathered. He has some very light leg feathers (all above the "knee"?) and in comparison to other bantams his age he is a tad small. Also, a single comb rather than his mothers Silkie looking comb. What I want to know is how his genetics would work when being paired with a true silkie? Could I expect some fully silkied progeny? I know that the silkied feather gene is recessive, but how does it work when passed down to offspring that would be only about an 1/8th Silkie? I will try and get pictures up ASAP of the chicken in question.
