    I have hatched some before as an experiment and the were shaped in an OEGB and a few had feathered feet. None had silkie feathering. They turned out to be a little larger than an OEGB.

    The hen was a gray silkie and the roo was a BB Red OEGB. All the chicks hatched as black. The lady who got them said that they are still mostly black, but the roosters had red hackle feathers on their neck and tail base. The hens were almost solid black.
