Here are a few pictures of my black split Silkies that I took today. They are black, but carrying the Lavender gene (hense the 'split'). I am VERY proud of these birds, as I 'bred' them myself. I paired the black hens with the lavender father personally in my backyard. These I think I'll name! This is my pullet that I hatched in November. She is TEE TINY, but has a HUGE top knot. She's what I call a 'micro' Silkie... LOL And here is some pics of my black split cockeral. He is JET BLACK! I've not seen a Black Silkie this black in a while. Take note of the pic of his back. Not a SINGLE off color feather anywhere, and look at the GREEN SHEEN! I'm VERY VERY excited about this boy! He's definitley going to a show or two this year.
