    I have white Araucana breeding trio and I have some juvi white Silkies. My plan is to create a blue egg laying Silkie.

    Anyone want to help? Or have any ideas?

    i offically after seeing that site want a turken and a silkie
     
  6. Hi! I have 2 silkie-feathered green-egger hens --- they both are blue and lay pale blue-green eggs. They are in with my Silkies (splash roo and white roo).
    The 2 pullets I kept (a blue and a splash) look pretty good, but aren't quite ready to start laying yet.

    If you want to try some eggs, just let me know.
    I don't know if blue would mess up your whites, but they are available.

    I also have Naked Neck green-eggers, NN Frizzled green-eggers, NN silkie-feathered green-eggers.
    Patti (RubberChickenLubber) just hatched some of them recently (video of hatchlings, I don't know if she has updated pics).

    Good luck with your project!

    So some of the birds on that site are basically showgirls that lay blue eggs. Interesting.

    Yes, I know it was done with a Turken. But I wanted to try with an Araucana. I think it might be a really pretty cross!
