    Im not a silkie lover, however I seem to have been thrown into it. My son sent me a pair of black silkies... Johnny and June.... from Oklahoma last fall. ..and a friend sent this over from her flock.

    Blue x Blue will yield 50% Blue, 25% Black, and 25% Splash chicks

    Blue x Black will yield 50% Blue and 50% Black chicks

    Black x Splash will yield 100% Blue chicks

    Blue x Splash will yield 50% Blue and 50% Splash chicks

    Splash x Splash will yield 100% Splash chicks
