    I'd help, but I don't know if white in silkies is recessive or dominant. [​IMG]

    Alrighty! As far as I can tell, this is what would happen -

    A white/blue cross would produce 50/50 black and blue birds split for recessive white. White/black partridge would produce black birds split for recessive white. White/blue partridge will again produce the 50/50 blue and black birds split for white.
