    I have two broody silkies...a black and a paint. I gave them a few fertilized eggs to sit on....(from my white, paint, and black girls) Pancake is the Daddy. He’s a handsome Polish Silkie cross. (See pic below)
    What colors should I expect?
    Also, if Dad is 50% Polish and 50% Silkie and the Mama’s are all 100% Silkie...
    babies will be 75% Silkie 25% Polish... does that mean there’s a chance they may have Silkie feathering? I know the smooth feathers are more dominant... just curious. Thanks!!

    I wish I could tell you what to expect, but I can say you've got some beautiful chickies! I was actually looking for a silkie paint pair to cross with my silkies. When are you expecting and are you willing to ship?

    Thanks

Interested to see if they have Silkie feathering!! Sorry I don’t ship, I’m in NY...Long Island.
