be better to just get some silkies, if i'm not mistaken breeding them together will never give you a pure breed chicken (new verity/breed maybe)

Eventually you can breed back to the silkie standard. It will take some generations, though. You can get silkied feathering by breeding them together or to a silkie. (about half will inherit if bred to a silkie, about a quarter if bred together). Most other silkie characteristics (slate skin, polydactyly, crest, muff/beard and foot feathering are dominant. One thing you will need to breed out is vulture hocks. Probably the most difficult task will be getting back to silkie type.
