    Skippy my silkie roo has a favorite girl, that he can only successfully mate with, and she is a turken. I would love some showgirls! But she keeps laying double yolked eggs! They're small because she is young.. There are a few that are single yolked but a majority are double. Is it something wrong with the food?
    Help? By the way... If I do hatch any out (probably unlikely), would the chicks grow up to be bantam or standard? The turken is a standard and Skippy is a bantam.

    They would be mid sized and smooth feathered--not showgirls.
