    If you hatched eggs with a silkie mom and a polish dad what would the baby chicks look like???? Or as adults?

    I got the eggs from my sister. I am almost sure that the mom was the silkie and dad was the polish.

    I had a boy that hatched too that had the same coloring as her and 5 toes, just a much smaller crest and beautiful tail feathers. I sold him and then regretted it.

    Ok was just curious since silkie eggs are very small. Wasnt sure how a polish would do.

    My silkie's eggs are not extremely small. Mine aren't the beautiful bearded. They are pet quality. Pretty and fluffy, but you can see their eyes. I'm actually recieving some great quality bearded silkie eggs this week.
