    Paint genetics with silkies

I had a white come from my paint breeding and assumed she was no longer useable. But if she’s a dominant white- I have a black cockerel I’m able...

    Just curious how these are given rankings? Is it by most likes or are there judges who choose? :)

    Crosses to make Satins

    I feel like (maybe) it would be easier to improve crest size vs improve leg feathers 🤔 but im just guessing... I did one polish cross with my birds and only 1/3 had good leg feathers, and none had a beard (my polish cockerel is bearedless but comes from a bearded line). They also have wacky...

    Crosses to make Satins

    Wanted to post a follow up photo of mine. Paint satins looking good so far. Most of them have silkied feather, but only 1 has 5 toes. The one with 5 toes has light skin though! Not sure who to keep 🤔

    Silkie x cochin genetics

    Silkie x cochin genetics

    Thanks so much for your response. So...she’s half silkie and then the offspring would be considered 3/4 silkie, right? And with that it’s still 50/50 of the silkie feathering?
