    Hey, give the genetic people some time. You've only posted this a couple hours ago, don't worry, you'll get your answers. I'd love to see the offspring of this cross, though!
    Good luck,
    Mitch

    I had one that was white and had feathered feet and a feathery topnot more like a polish. I have one now that looks like a silkie with a smooth head.
