    What would a Buff Silkie cross a Mottled Cochin bantam look like? Has anyone hatched any Silkie/Cochin mixes?

    Howdy beetandsteet I have a Silkie X Pekin [Cochin bantam]. She is not mottled but I am happy to share a picture if you wanted to see the look/stature etc but colour-wise, she is just buff.

    Her name is Crystal and she has 5 toes, as mentioned, she is Silke X Pekin and was hatched here. She has a Frizzle sister but being Frizzle, it is kind of hard to see anything except a mass of feathers [​IMG]

    Crystal: She is 6 weeks old in this one:

    What a gorgeous girl!!! Thx for posting the pics! I'm going to be hatching a few bantam eggs I have. Mother will be a Silkie and father will be a Cochin. Looking forward to seeing what kinds of mixes I get! :)
