well i'm not looking for something I could still call silver lace, just a black and white spotty silkie. Maybe call it "dalmatian" . Not like a paint, more like a reverse paint.
In other news, just tried to bring my cockerel inside for coop training and cleaning prep for the show coming up, and my young silkie pullet was cackling away and got him all excited and he started crowing . Can't have that in my apartment so back outside he went. At least he doesn't get very dirty.
I think if you mix any thing with a silkie that dose not have the silked feathers you will get someting with hard featers and not silked. So mixing the silkie and polish would not give you a bird with the same kind of feathers a silkie has.
