    Up to you. I'd personally keep the pures and just make more of these crosses if you wanted. Cochins and silkies often make good setters.

    I'd keep them all and raise them to maturity, then pick your favorites for breeding.

    If you keep only two you may well end up with two males or two females and there's always the possibility that one won't survive to adulthood then you'd need to find another.

    Just my thoughts. [​IMG]
