Vaulted Skulls In Silkies

A vaulted skull is a hole or unclosed portion of bone in the top portion of the Silkie’s skull. This genetic trait was introduced into silkies via crosses with the Polish breed of chickens. The Polish were bred into Silkies to improve crest size. Often chickens are bred to another breed to get new colors, traits and types.
