Im wondering how long does it take to cement a color? Im going to be working with silkies. I really am more interested in colors then show quality at the moment. That being said i would have the colors and basics( leg feathering, comb type) breed true then start another color. Id keep working on getting back to type with all new colors however. How long does it take? How many genarations? What would be the best way to go about doing this? Get some black silkie roos and cross them on hens of color i want? Then breed back. I have no birds at the moment and will be starting from scratch. Im planing on lots of birds to start the color then sell way down to finish it. Thanks!
