    it should look ike an old english but maybe with some silkie feathering and a small crest and beard (if your silkie is bearded) and lightly feathered feet

    I have some silky crosses and those crests, five toes and feathered feet come through in almost all of the offspring. Coloring would be difficult to determine, but it could be very interesting!

    did they ever hatch? i am wondering what silkie oeb mixes will look like. i wish there was a way not to get the booted feet. it seems like they always have poo stuck in them no matter how clean the coop is.

    I have an OEGH x buff silkie and they look like an OEGH with black legs, five toes and very lightly feathered legs. They are super cute.
