    I was given this bantam and I was told that she is about 9 months old and is part silkie. Any idea what else she might be mixed with. She lays the cutest little white eggs (sometimes a bit off white).






    Those little white ones are hers.

    I don't know, but she is cute. Maybe someone who knows will get on here and venture a guess.

    Beautiful! She have a V comb? Kinda? Duccles have them, I think. But they don't normally come in white, and I think Silkies are recessive white, so the other breed is either dominant white or carrying recessive white. I know that doesn't decide anything, but I think it means that the other breed has to be able to come in white.

    That's actually a 'bad' rosecomb. I have no idea what she is mixed with, but she is just darling!

    Looks like a bad buttercup comb to me. Could she be a smidge siccilian? I'm actually thinking she's part leghorn or banty leghorn

    in my opinion she looks like a sultan Silkie cross.... Sultans are in both standard and bantam and both have v combs and also have feathered shanks and five toes just like the Silkie... this is a picture that i gotten from

    hope this helped

    I was going to say sultan too- but I don't know what kind of combs they have.
