    I have stumbled across this photo of this silkie a while back and have been trying to figure out what colours would make up this colour. Obviously not complete yet. In NZ we have only a limited colour/genetics to work with such as blacks, blues, partridge, buff, white and splash. There are people trying to breed mottled and paints but no one that I know of have achieved this yet.
    I'm not the best at understanding genetics but slowly learning.
    So am wondering how would I go about this?
    Thanks in advance :)

    That's a pretty color it's too bad no one responded with how to potentially breed. I would love one of those
