    Could be mixed with a silver penciled Wyandotte, judging from the comb (looks like it was mixed with a rose comb). Other than that I'm not sure. She's beautiful.

    All 4 chicks would be considered silkie mixes.

    You'll never get "full Silkie" babies out of them because they're now considered mutts, not PB Silkies... but if you breed them back to a Silkie you will definitely have more silkie-feathered offspring.
