    Has anyone ever done this before? I looked through the "Silkies of a Different Color" thread and after 30 pages, i gave up bc none were a cross between a partridge and a solid white.

    I would love to see some pictures or hear any advice on pairing those 2 colors.

    I was wondering if you had come across any responses to this question, or if you had proceeded to breed them on your own. If so, how did it come out. We are wanting to do this very thing, but wanted to see what outcomes others have had first.
    Thanks!

    It is completely unpredictable--all whites can have different colour/pattern genetics from each other--colour and pattern are prevented (and therefore hidden) by white.
