    Hello everyone,
    i am brand new as of today and already have questions. My first is some help with what I have. I know it helps to have more pics but I am not sure what kind of hen she is. Feather fet, notice the blue ears and beak, 5 toes, blue skin.....silkie right? the only deal is she isn't hairy like a silkie.Any ideas? By the way she only has black chicks from a pure bred black silkie rooster. Constanly broody.

    ditto silkie mix, or hatchery silkie. None the less they are valuable as "living incubators", you can put eggs under them and not bother with incubators.[​IMG]

    Thanks for the info. I have separated her from the rooster because she will hatch 7 or 8 chicks 4 times a year if I let her. But she will not hatch anything except her own eggs.

    If she is smooth feathered, she is a silky cross - welcome to BYC.
