    Never had a silkie roo, only the hens. If you didn't want to stick with hatching out purebred silkies by having another silkie roo, you'd need something small - a serama or a bantam cochin perhaps. I have a special needs hen that is half silkie and half bantam cochin and she's a sweetheart.

    I'd bet so. Where there's a will, there's a way. ;) My free range banty roosters are always breeding the free range standard size hens.
