You want lavender Silkies? I want to give them to you! But........ here is square one. He seems to be an F2 silkiesomething cross. His skin is black, he has 5 toes, and a mulberry comb (and earlobes, I know). I'm gonna give him girls that will contribute a crest and foot feathering. The reason I'm posting in this forum is that I'm wondering who contributed the lavender gene? If I were to start from scratch, I would have used a lavender Duccle, so I wouldn't lose the foot feathering or beard, but I've heard that OEGB is often used. Whaddaya think?
