Mine are the same way...One of my roos started getting aggressive, to me, not the others, so he became food...I was told mine were pure AC, but from what I've seen of their meat, it should have been very dark...His wasn't at all. It was different than a "regular" chicken, but definitely not blackThese are beautiful! But I’m hoping for fibromelanistic birds, mine don’t really have black skin, but my hens do have black feet, beaks and combs, their brothers have marbled black n red combs and black and yellow shanks. Crossing them back and or maybe getting a fibro Roo is the future plan
That is a cross I may end up needing in my flock Lol I've never cared for the silkies myself, but I just love the way she looks!Thank you! Yes she is a silkie polish cross. Just coming up for 3 months old now. I'm loving the beetle sheen developing on her feathers. They are sooooo soft as well.
Wow!! She’s awesome!!! She has everything....crest, shanks, consistent feather color, eyes, beak! She is an incredibly beautiful young pullet destined to be a mother to many!
Awww, thank you so much!!Wow!! She’s awesome!!! She has everything....crest, shanks, consistent feather color, eyes, beak! She is an incredibly beautiful young pullet destined to be a mother to many!
Note that the Barred gene is inhibiting the expression of fibro. Cute accident, though. Am curious what would happen if you bred him back to an AC hen.It was an unintentional cross between a gorgeous mystery rooster (which turned out to be an AC) and a little BR hen, when the rooster flew the coop and got eaten by dogs I collected the eggs for a week and got his progeny, thank gods. It was a sexlink cross resulting in black hens and barred roosters. So When I breed them I’m hoping to get some black roosters to cross back to the F1 generation Hens. But now I’m in love with the barred Ayam cemani look also View attachment 2389903
