    Columbian silkies?

    Your roo does look more to be out of Gray breeding. If I remember correctly - breeding columbian to partridge is the route to go. Here are a couple of Columbians that I raised last year. Correction, these are Barred Columbian.

    Cuckoo Silkies?

    Ahh...that is what I though would be the results. I wonder, if we ever singled out the Id(dermal inhibitor) how long it might take to get back to clear barring without losing the Id again... :/
