    Hello Hello.

    I've been wondering and researching this for quite a while and so i just decided to make a post about it.

    I LOVE silkies (love the look), their extremly friendly (great personalities), broody and very soft....but their egg production is alot slower then other breeds.

    I decided to reaserch the silkie mixes and see what i could find...but i couldnt find alot of info or a chart about them. (i think if i get enough info and pictures and feedback from you guys that i will just make my own chart.) [​IMG]

    Ive been thinking that silkie mixes would have a better egg production and still be very broody (and keeping the pretty look of a silkie)...."might be wrong?"

    So what do you guys think? Do any of you have silkie mixes? What do you think of them? What mix do you like the best? please post pics of your beautiful silkie mixes! [​IMG]
