    Hello fellow BYC'ers!
    I have recently hatched what is thought to be a Silkie-cochin cross. I am in love with her breed! She is so cute!
    I'd like to see more of these pretty birds. Any type of silkie cross will work!
    I don't know how many people have them, but if you do have one, please by all means: Show them off!!
    Here is Ebony.

    These are mine! All silkie x cochins. One is a frizzled cockerel too. Ignore the little yellow guys and the clean legged black they are another mix .

    Here's my Elphaba and her beau, Bowie. I believe she is a silchin. [​IMG] He's an Appenzeller Spitzhauben.

    This is her just chillin', notice the white and black rooster tail feathers in the upper left corner? He's never far from her side. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It'll be awhile, but I expect she'll get some head poof, already has lightly feathered legs.

    Ebony is all grown up now! It turns out that she is actually a Silkie- favorelle cross. Here she is.
