    I had turken rooster that someone said was a mix with a silkie. But anyways it bred one of my black O.E.G. hens and had 3-5 chicks. They have the silkie toe thing, dark skin like a silkie, colored like the black game, and a naked neck like the turken.

    Well the turken had a huge bow tie so I think the two super dark ones with THE SILKIE TOES is his. I only raise O.E.G's and I thought he was neat. Lol. So theres 3 naked necks and 2 chicks with weird toes. Pics soon!

    I have a chick I knew would be odd who sounds very similar. The chick is from a blue showgirl rooster over an easter egger hen that's colored like a BCM. I suspect it of being a pullet because as I understand it the black silkie skin is sex-linked and if it were a cockerel, it would have paler skin (having one black gene from dad and a normal one from Mom).
