    I was given some fertile silkie eggs for my new incubator, just to try it out [​IMG] I was told by the person who gave them to me that they were gold laced silkies, I saw his breeding stock and I must say they were lovely looking birds..... but I have now been trying to find the colour on the internet with no success... is this a true colour, any information would be great... thanks [​IMG]

    I have candled both eggs today, and a big [​IMG] both are fertile and doing well... I am on day 6 so I will have to post a picture once they hatch, im thinking maybe he has got confused with the gold silkie, but im nearly 100% positive they had black on them like all other gold laced chickens I have seen... watch this space [​IMG]

    There is such a thing. It's a colour in the works in Europe.

    I wonder if they used Barnevelders crossed with silkies to get the color? They almost look like they have the lacing and the color is right on.

    I'd say Wyandotte or Barnevelder [​IMG]

    Thats great, your silkies are lovely.. the ones the man had im sure had a little less black, which looked like it was painted on the edges of each feather... but I could be wrong, I will soon see, well in another 2 weeks anyway [​IMG] im so excited, fingers crossed for my eggs in the bator... both seem to be doing great at the minute [​IMG]

  10. People call crossbred colors anything to get them sold.
