    Not sure if thie is the right place or not.

    I have a black silkie rooster & he has been breeding with my buff orpingtons & aracauna's.

    My silkies are not yet laying (been almost a year they hold those eggs like gold).

    In any case - when I get done with the adjustments to my incubator I'm going to try to hatch a mess of these. I wonder what will come out???!!!!!

    Right now I have a phoenix hen sitting on eggs. They are a cross of phoenix and polish. I'm hoping to get one with a crest and long tail. Calling them my hippie chicks.

    My very light blue splash Polish Bantam hen and my white Polish bantam hen bred with my black frizzle cochin bantam roo. The chicks are now 6 months or so. They are not frizzled, but are a odd variety of colors. The one roo I kept is sort of a brownish, blueish color mixed with white and has some black spots. He has about 6 feathers on his head that stand up. A couple of the others came out white and nicely splashed with black. Another was a pretty blue. One gold, a couple black, one white, and one that looked sort of like a Robin! They all have a few poofy feathers on their head.

    I call them Pizzles.[​IMG][​IMG]
