    texascowboy1979 Chillin' With My Peeps


    Regarding breeding... I only know what Ive experienced...

    My 1st breeding group
    An Arucana rumpless Male and Turken Hen crossed, I got half with naked neck and half with feathered necks... I got half with tail and half rumpless...

    With that... I have a new breeding group and wanted to get some insite from others who have done it...
    Breeding Group 1

    I have a Black Silky Male... Nice Roo...

    I have a Gray Silky Turken hen... VERY NICE...

    I plan to cross them... what should the offspring be?

    In my Idea... I think it should be 75 percent silky and 25 percent normal feathers..., and that half the chicks should not have feathers on there neck... is that right?
    Breeding Group 2

    Black silky Male

    Black Frizzle hen

    Gray Frizzle hen
    Breeding Group 3

    Black Silky male

    Gray Normal feather Rumpless Arucana hen.

    What should the offspring be for my 3 breeding groups and in what percentages do you think?
    Ill post pictures tomorrow when theres sun light.
    Thanks for all your help

    You should be posting this question in the Breeds, Genetics & Showing section of this site. You can probably call on a moderator and ask them to move this posting to the appropriate section.

    group 1 all silkies, half will be naked neced silkies (showgirls).

    group 2 all normal feathered (given all frizzles are not hetero for h), half will be frizzled (sizzles)

    group 3 all normal feather, half will be rumpless.

    All group chicks will have silkie traits if the roosters are of good quality.... extra toe, dark skin, crest...

    Quote:An silkied parent will give the gene to all its offspring. If both parents are silkied, their offspring will be silkied; if only one parent is silkied, they will all be split to silkie. (However, it the other parent is split, half will be silkied.)
