My silkie hen is setting on eggs, 3-4 of which are the only ones that appear to be fertile. The roos I have are Barred Rock, EE, and Ancona. What do you think the chicks will look like. Will they have silkie feathering, or will they just look like their fathers?

Weird comb, small crest, most having sparse leg feathering, most will have 5 toes(if she has that), medium sized tail. Normal(but slightly longer and softish) feathers. Depending on roo, some chicks may show dark skin.

Look up any picture of silkie or even Polish cross(just throw in 5th toe and leg feathering and you will get birds similar to those.

Those from BR will have barring, Ancona- black and "who knows" out of the EE(and especially if he and the silkie hen are not black).
