    I'd like to get some more chickens eventually to have with my two silkies and I was thinking about cross breeding to see what their chicks would look like(cross breeds always seem the cutest!) I have a white silkie rooster right now so what chickens are around the same size?(and are good in cold weather. I live in Michigan so it can be really unpredictable.)

    A lot of bantam breeds are similar in size. Some good cold hardy ones include Cochins, Faverolles, Wyandottes, and Brahmas. All of those are cold hardy, and are, at least in my opinion, adorable and easy to raise.
