has anyone tried a silkie/sumatra cross for black meat? i have searched and googled but found nothing. posted in the breed/genetics discussions but this may be a better place. i have a lone black sumatra hen and 2 silkies given to me in a group of 22 mixed birds that i need to do something with. my own flock is seperated into groups in different coops- layers and some breeders, roosters have their own pens and a silkie flock. we discussed what we will do with most of the birds but have thought this black skin cross might work. as feathering is not an issue putting the sumatra into the silkie flock might be a good place for her.
