I love my white silkie rooster and my big Jersey Giant hen. I believe i have successfully bred the two! (I also have a smooth Sizzle silkie rooster who is in the mix). I'm still trying to figure out who the father is. Has anyone here bred silkies and Jersey giants? This is my first chick at 4days old! 90% sure the dad is my white silkie rooster. Thoughts?

Here is a picture of the 4day old silkie/giant chick next to its 3day old silkie/sizzle frizzle sibling. Weight : 25grams vs 55grams. Also, picture of mom and likely dad.

What's a smooth sizzle silkie?
Silkie = silkie feathers
Sizzle = silkie and frizzled feathers
Right?
Smooth = neither frizzle or silkie feathered?
So that rooster is just regular feathered?
Have a pic?

Lady fluffington is a mix and I'm unsure of correct terminology. I believe she is a sizzle silkie/cross. Entirely curled feathers, but not the sikkie feayher type. Shes tiny,sweet and broody.Here she is with her white chick (white silkie father) and jersey giant/(white silkie dad?) Chick she hatched.

Nugget has feathered feet, smooth feathers but silkie temperament and I can't quite figure his exact breed mix

Nugget has Feather feet,5toes, smooth feathers smaller than a normal chicken. He is a sweet guy who gets along with our silkie roo (same hatch date). Could also be the father of the jersey cross chick at top of post.

Do you have any update on this topic and pictures of the grown chickens? We think we may have some jersey giant crosses with silkie and wondering.
I am thinking of doing this when my black silke roo and my black jersey Giant hen id love to see what the offspring will look like
