    For the Cochin you can start with a Choc. Bantam Orp rooster, Breed it to the best typed Black Cochin Hen you can find. All the pullets will be Choc. the Cockrells will be 1/2 and 1/2. Run an F1xF1 select for cochin type and Choc. Cockrell. Breed back to the F1 hen and and a second F2 Choc. Cockrell back over the black cochin Hen for better type keep the Choc. Pullets again. Keep breeding for Type and Color till its right.

    For Silkies no I have no Clue..
