    When the NN Hen breeds with Sultan/Silky Roo will the Chicks be " Showgirls " ?

    no. Showgirls are many generations into development. Starting over again makes no sense. And in the first generation you would lose silkie feathering. For the sultan? (doesn't look like one to me), it would be even farther away from being a showgirl as it obviously has white skin.

    Just noticed that the buff cockerel I thought you meant is a sultanXsilkie, and you do not show a photo of the sultan father. Sultans are white, black or blue/ Sultans are similar in appearance to bearded polish, but have vulture hocks, profuse foot feathering and five toes. :Like polish, they have a very small v-comb. Your cockerel has no beard, and even if his silkie mama is nonbearded, he should still have at least a partial beard from his sultan father. You don't mention the colour of his father, but buff seems an unlikely possibility with a white silkie mother and a white, black or blue father.
