    Yup, I just ran it through the handy-dandy Chicken Calculator and silver Sebright over recessive white produces 100% black split to recessive white offspring. :) Such a cutie, congrats!

    I was hoping for a pure silkie but kind of hard to be disappointed with this adorable little thing. :). And thanks! That calculator is handy!

    I've officially gone crazy and won the lavender cuckoo Cochin bantam eggs. Now I need o find some lavender Cochin bantams to breed them to to diversify the lines. But then again, think I will be waiting to see if they actually hatch! Lol

    Here, Sally: http://kippenjungle.nl/kruising.html You can input the different loci for your birds, or click on 'Help, pick color from list' to select specific colors and bring them back to the calculator with 'To Chicken Calculator'. There's all sorts of other things on there, too! Have fun! :D I have since I found it. Now I've got all sorts of projects in mind... :lol:

    And I took some pictures today, mainly of my little girls and Margie. :D Nothing makes ya feel better than time with the girls.

    Rangi the Ancona, of course, who was practically standing on my head while I took Po's picture. :rolleyes:

    Huka the Silver Lakenvelder, who apparently did not want her picture taken:

    And Whiri hiding her face while Frou-Frou, my beloved splash Marans, tries to get in on her dust bath. :lol:
