Hi! In the next few years I want to start my own line of chocolate silkies!I know they already exist,but I want to make my own any way. What would be the best breed to breed with the silkie to obtain these birds? I am looking for a bantam that is chocolate (Obviously). I know choco is recessive, I would breed whatever kind of chicken I will use to a black silkie,then breed from there. @MysteryChicken @The Moonshiner @Amer @nicalandia @RoostersAreAwesome @NatJ @DarJones

Chocolate isn't that popular of a color in chicken breeds.

I know there's Chocolate Mottled Cochins, Chocolate Orpingtons, & chocolate Silkies.

Maybe begin with either one?
