what would happen if you put a Phoenix rooster over a silkie hen, or any other kind of hen really, for this or any other project, the reason i ask is i am limited on the number of phoenix hens i have, and i would rather use them to make MORE, and use the Roosters to cross out with, would this slow things down?

The only reason I went back to the silkies more was for the crest and black skin and the 5 toes. If you are wanting a more phoenix type that is a lot faster. It just depends on what traits you are looking for.

i am sorry, what i am wanting to know is it possible to have good results in any project if you use a hen from another breed or type for the out cross rather than the rooster, i was asking if in this cross if they used a silkie hen or rooster, i have been told the hen sets type? while i really like these crested birds and the idea of useing silkies in a couple of the projects i have in mind i dont want to have to use the few "pure" phoenix hens i have at this time to cross with, if i could use the Roosters i have to cross over the other breeds and have good results thats what i would like to do,

i am sorry if i am not makeing sense,

I just use what ever I have, and go from there. When I crossed them I got some that looked like both parents. You just pick the ones that look the closest to what you want and breed them back to the body style that you want. And then other characteristics you want.

It is better to use Phoenix hens if you want Phoenix feather traits. But do it however you think you have to.

Yes a hen is best...But a cock still contributes but not quite as much....
