    What would the outcome be if I mixed a white silkie with a buff silkie? Does anyone have pictures? Thank you [​IMG]

    If the bird is a dominant white, it could be covering up any number of colors, so breeding it with a buff would yield unknown results. If it's a recessive white, when bred with a buff the offspring would be buff, carrying the recessive white gene.
