    For about three weeks now, my black silkie has been sitting on some eggs. I thought for sure none would hatch, but of course, today one did. So the mother is a full black silkie, father is Rhode Island Red/Buff Orpington cross. Ever heard of it? Seen it? Thanks!

    Haven't hatched yet, first batch none were fertile, however another hen is sitting on some, and I KNOW hers will be fertile.

    You said in your first post that one hatched, didn't you?
    I have a silkie/cochin/black orpington pullet. She's got black skin, beak, comb, feathers. A 5th toe fused to her forth. And a little beard and muffs. She also has very big eyes.
