    Well my rooster finally did his job, one of my hens are sitting on 6 fertilized eggs. He's a white silkie rooster and she's a black silkie, what color do you think the chicks will be?[​IMG]

    I think that too, but not 100% sure, as I don't raise silkies....but I feel like I read that somewhere
