    2 Mosaic Cockerels - SLO County, CA

    These two gorgeous Mosaic brothers looking for a new home(s). Our bachelor flock has gotten too large and these handsome boys would love some ladies of their own. They're 9 months old and human/dog/cat friendly (though don't want to be picked up or held). Would be great for a breeding project...

    Will we be laying eggs or serenading our humans?

    I'll cross my fingers that a few more end up being pullets, but it sounds like I have a bachelor flock in my future! Looking at the pictures again, I should mention that both mosaics have neck feathers with vanes that are the opposite color of the main feather color. So while the pictures make...

    Cockerel Timeout

    Our flock of 20 has two 5-month old cockerels - an exchequer leghorn and a silkie - who we keep around for entertainment and predator protection/coyote bait. They grew up together and get along okay; the leghorn is definitely dominant, but they coexist just fine and there have been no fights at...

    White silkie genetics?

    Can you explain this to me further? My recollection on dominant vs recessive is from peas in high school biology class many years ago. Doesn't recessive require both mom and dad to pass on a recessive white gene, so only way to get white would be a pair of recessive genes? In which case, how...

    White silkie genetics?

    Hello everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster. I picked up two white silkie chicks back in April, and for the first few weeks while they went through the fluffball stage, they almost looked like different colored chicks. One had a gold cast to him, the other a silver cast to her fluff...
