Hi, my mumma Silkie has 8chicks. I have both Pekin and Silkie Roosters. Some chicks have black skin and feet of the Silkie and some have yellow skin and feet of the Pekin. Is cross fertilization possible (eggs fertilized by both roosters) or did some chicks just take after mum and some after the pekin dad? Is there a way to tell which chicks are Silkies and Which are Silkie/Pekins or would they all be Silkie/Pekins?
Sorry if this is a silly question, i hadnt really planned on breeding them so didnt do much research.
