    maybejoey got chickenidous?

    If i breed a tophat roo with a standard chicken, a silkie or a americana? Will the outcome have headresses? Will they lay blue eggs? Would love to have one with a headress that lays blue eggs![​IMG]

    I am no expert, but if you will search for silkie or polish crosses there are pics of those kinds of crosses.as for egg color you will probably get white eggs for a few generations, I believe.

    You will get some sort of crest - not as full as the pure breds
    blue egg gene is dominant that's why EE's can be made by putting
    a pure bred blue egger like americana over any sort of hen
    blue + brown gets you olive or green eggs
