    Find a columbian female?

    Seriously, if you want to make columbian silkies, I suggest getting a well coloured bantam light brahma or bantam columbian cochin (if you can find one), and breed to that, then breed promising pullets back to the father. You will lose silkie feathering the first generation, but should regain it in the 2nd when bred back to a silkie,
