    As far as I'm aware, all different chicken breeds can cross breed.

    Where are your silkies? I only see the four hens.
    Also, is that an egg I see? :)

    Ha ha! Well I guess golf balls really do look like eggs, not just to chickens! :)
    Gorgeous silkies, by the way. My last silkie (that I had for around 5 years) died recently. Some people don't seem to like silkies at all, but every silkie I've ever had were extremely friendly. :)

    I've heard buckeyes are great chickens, never had them personally.
    If you're looking for eggs I suggest RIRs, leghorns, new hampshire reds, or BSLs.
    Although leghorns are not as hardy in the Winter.
