I think they would look lovely with splashed colors! Our silkie Basil is crossed with Americana so she's a lovely mix of orange, black, and grey.
Yes! I would love to see a picture!

Well, I looked FOREVER for the information that you wanted, and when I found what I was looking for, it didn't have what you needed. But, it's personal now, so here it is anyway,

Heres the breeding basics for Silkie colours that you could throw off:

Blue X Blue = Blues, Blacks and Splashes
Blue X Splash = Blues and Splashes
Blue X Black = Blues and Blacks
Black X Splash = Blues
Splash X Splash = Splash

No white in the bunch! That is where I messed up. My guess is a white chicken with a black head and black tailfeathers. And some black thrown in here and there. :)

What would the outcome be of a black Silkie hen and a white Silkie rooster?
Blues, blacks and splash (look white but wont breed true).....see the chart it was originally posted under the "blue isbars" thread a while back!:) if your black is 100% pure black and the white is 100% white almost then you should get 100% BLUE....if the white isn't pure you will know becaquse the chicks will come blue, black and splash (white that isnt pure)!!!
