Would a Silkie x White star be a good layer AND go broody?

    It would be handy to have a few 'Silk stars' [​IMG]. And when I say good layer, I mean with out going broody. So, if she didnt go broody for 3 weeks, she would lay 18-20 eggs.

    Someone on here had a thread about silky/leghorn crosses that they had bred for several generations. They were supposed to be acceptable layers and excellent broody hens.
