    I have a young buff silkie--don't know gender yet. Beautiful Catdance bird. I would love to get another buff baby or two. Here are the colors of silkies I have: Blue, Black & Splash. Can any of these colors bred w/buff possibly give me another buff-- or do I need buff w/buff? Thanks for looking!

    Buff needs to be bred with buff, unless you want to spend years getting the genes back to producing pure buffs.
