    We have raised Silkies for many years, but recently acquired some showgirls. What will a Showgirl rooster bred with silkie hens produce?

    If the showgirl is heterozygous for the NN gene, you will get 50% silkie, 50% het showgirl.

    If the showgirl is homozygous for the NN gene, you will get 100% het showgirl.
