    I know that chicken skin can be white, yellow or black, are there any other colours? Some silkie crosses have more purple skin than black, but any others?
    And more important : how chicken are taking colour of their skin after their parents.. [i forgot the word for that - -' ] after mother, after father, sex link, other way?
