What color is this considered

What color is this silkie considered. Grey or blue. What color do you think I'll get breeding him with white showgirls

He is Birchen. What colors you would get from breeding with the showgirls depends on if they are recessive white or dominant white. If they are recessive white, then you will likely get black or birchen chicks. If they are dominant white, you will have no idea what other genes they could be carrying. Some chicks may be white, or black, or something else entirely.

He doesn't look at all like a silkie to me.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And one man in his time plays many parts."
