PAINT SILKIES!?!?! - Page 16

post #151 of 210

The problem is, many American gamefowl (regardless of color) have split white sickle feathers (mottling gene?) so I would be inclined to overlook the sickle feathers on the white bird. I still have to take photos of my adult Silkies although they are not fully grown. It is tough to tell with Silkies especially in photos because the feathers blend more.

I had a Sizzle pullet that came out looking paint a while back.  She was solid white with a couple of black "spots" just like the paint Silkies.  Her down was the same color too.  I sold her b/c I didn't realize it was anything special...just thought she was a mutt color.  roll  Too bad I didn't keep her and breed her back to a Silkie just to see what I got.

No, I don't think he was around yet when I hatched her.  Maybe I should cross him to some Silkies just for fun?  Black or white ones?

I would probably go with white and see if you can get some black spots.  But then again, white covers up...so I don't know!!

Decisions, decisions.  lol

ETA:  By the way, that roo is head honcho among the bantam Cochins (and my Wheaten Ameraucana roo), so I am getting a TON of barred babies.  I'm interested to see if any of them will feather out white with the black barring like him.  How old was he when you first noticed that pattern?
