With my accidental cross of a Silkie Phoenix, resulting in Hiro, I have been increasingly interested in the possibility of breeding a Silkie feathered Phoenix. Here's a pic of Hiro. So some questions. My Hiro has Silkie feet, comb, feathered legs and beard, but has Phoenix coloring and type feathers. He/she has a crest, though it looks like a flat polish crest. If I breed Hiro back to a Silkie, how many generations would it take to get Silkie feathering? Has anyone had success with getting other then Silkie coloring? Would the long tails hold up? Can you breed half sisters and half brothers or is that too close of a relation? Does anyone know?????
