    hi
    Has anyone tried to bred a isa brown x silkie. I have a silkie male thats a silvery- black
    named Elvis, Two Isa browns named rainbow and bossy boots and two other white silkies.
    I want to try and i was wondering if anyone had a picture of one they could show me.
    What do you think it would look like if i tried. Would they be good layers or broodies or nether. I have bought a incubator that should be here in the next 2-3 days.
    What do you think everyone?.

    I have we got an egg from neighbours and she well hatched she is around 3 week she has a white body, 5 toes, feet feathers and a browny white chest I will get a photo but the characteristics of these birds are amazing.

    any silkie male cross with white/yellow shank hens will produce SEX LINKS the Hens from this cross will be broody as silkies but wont be very good layers due to this, they will have normal feathers, 5 toes...

    Males will have yellow shanks and yellow skin
    Females will have black/dark shanks and black/dark skin/face

    Please post pics of them when they hatch
