What would the outcome be of a black Silkie hen and a white Silkie rooster?
Idk that but i crossed a white rooster to a buff hen and got a buff chick ... i have seen the cross you speech of and it was white headed with mostly black body with white on tips of wings and stuff. It was fairly cool that's why i made the cross i did
I read this somewhere and if I recall correctly they will be mostly black. But what do I know lol maybe you'll get blk n white splashes!?...
I'll have to try it out! If I do it over the summer ill let you kno
Please let us know ! I would be interested!
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.
ForeverFeathered, do you have a pic of Basil? Would love to see her colors!
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.
This helps me though cause I have a blue. So thank you for your effort. And I saw this and thought of you.
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)!!!
Of course we have a frizzle as well so here are the girlies!
LOVE IT!! Thank you!!
Nice pic of the girlies. I need some girlies! I have too many boys. Lol
Haha we can't have Roos because we live in a community
So do I but no rules on the books.
don't we all live in a "community"?!?! LOL
