    Does anyone have any silkies that are laced like for example, a sebright? I would like to see pictures!

    By the way, I bred a golden sebright hen and a white silkie roo together. Ended up with a black-skined, five-toed chicken with black feathers and silver/white lining.

    You won't get Laced Silkies on the first cross. It takes several generations and probably even more to try and make it actually look like lacing. There were pictures of some project Golden Laced Silkies on Feathersite, but I can't seem to find them.
