    Quote:Yes the name came from the silver back, which you will see on all silver pied hens. Well in the color blue anyway, not so with p[each and etc. [​IMG]

    So what do you get crossing IB pied to IB silver pied?
    Can someone enlighten me on the anticipated breakdown?

    You will get pieds, dark pieds and whites. All carrying one copy of white eye gene.
     
  8. If you want Silver Pieds, start with Silver Pieds or birds that are at least split to SP.

    So then silver pied to white (unless it was a white from a silver pied) will only produce white and normal pied??
    Because it seems to get silver pied both parents must be carrying silver pied?
    Does this sound correct?

    Yes, silver pied x white will produce pieds and whites, correct they most be silver pieds to produce silver chicks or out of silver pied birds.
