I'm wondering on the best breeds to cross with Silkies... maybe to get a throwback to the fluffy silkie pattern in 3rd generation when crossed with a straight feathered bird? Is that even possible to do? My other question is about the silver gene, I love it! I read once somewhere that the Gray silkie does carry the Silver gene, but I'm not totally sure since it was only one site. Is the silver gene dominant or recessive and what other genes does it act on? Here is a photo of my gray silkie pullet in question Thank you in advance!
