    Does anyone know much about colors? If I have a calico silkie roo, what should I breed him with and what colors could I expect?

    Thanks,
    Cresty

    most silkies are solid colors like white, black, blue, buff. if it has 3 colors then it is most likely mixed. if it is a good one then breed it. i would breed it to blue{my fav} cornishman.

    Exactly what color is it? Partridge Silkies are somewhat of a mix of colors, but I have never heard of a calico. If it is purebreed, than I would breed it to another of the same color.

    It would help if you could post a picture.

    Here's the link to the photo. Sorry I've never posted photos to BYCs so I didn't want to mess it up.

    I guess you'll need to copy and paste this address to view. Let me know what you think. Calicos (I guess like cats are three colors). He's a mix of grey, black and red. Very unusual. [​IMG]
