    You said all it takes is the one copy of silver from the mom to change it to silver chick down

    Quote:it has been documented on this very same thread that e+/eb S/s+ B/b+ males lack a headspot(or is very Faint like in this case) AND have a well defined headstripes Why? I would guess the e+/eb could interfere on the headspot expression and remember they only have one copy so the headspot will not as big and will not alter the chick's headstrip.. Also dont forget about the Celarly SILVER chick down, I dont know why you not seeing this? its the first thing that POPS out when you look at the chik... WOW that chick is whitish/Silver... no females from that cross will produce SILVER chicks... and here is the documented cross on this subject. CL x Silver Laced breeds.. which are sexlinks

    I bred my cl to a silver based hen. The whole silver for males goldish for females worked on half of them. The silver tan ones. The male had a head spot female didnt though.

    The other half was black with silver and the male had well defined headspot female had a light one. But there was no redish brown to the girl at all. Although i know the findings are correct on your cross they didnt hold true on mine.

    I wont blanket every cross with those findings. I dont think every cross responds the same when bred to a silver.

    Quote:thats right, and the only chicks getting the Sexlinked Silver from the mother is the male chicks, the pullets can only get the Gold and since they woul also be Ig+/ig(heterozygous cream) that would make any females from this cross Gold looing..
