    One thing I love about this place is that someone here has already done what others want to try...so I am wondering if anyone has pictures of the outcome of a silkie over a barred rock hen that I can see:>)
    Please post them!
    Thanks a bunch!

    Well, almost. This hen's sire was a Cochin/Silkie cross. Her mother was a Barred Rock.

    that's a pretty hen:>) Does she have a tinge of green on her? From the cochin I would guess...

    Sweet. I have some dominiques in the bator that may have a silkie or polish or frizzle dad. I hope they come out that pretty.

    The green is the typical sheen a black bird will have in the feathers, not because of the breed. My black Ameraucanas have that as well.​
