I have partridge silkies and then I bought two beautiful cockerels a few months ago. One is blue calico and the other is blue/porcelain, so I wanted to breed both the boys back to porcelain to see what I would come up with. As I have looked for porcelain chicks, I've decided I might as well get some lavendar and buff and work on my own porcelain.
Of everything I have, the silkies are my absolute favorite! All that fluff makes me laugh every time I watch them wandering around here. And their personalities are to die for. Even when my roos get irritated with each other, they just fluff up their hackles really big and start jumping around in the air like acrobats! All I have to do is go get one and move it over a few feet and they forget they were even fighting to begin with.
How did you end up with one porcelain and one lavender chick? What are you wanting to do with them as far as breeding when they grow up?
