    I have a lavender silkie roo and a white silkie hen, and I'm thinking about hatching their eggs. My question is, what would their offspring look like? I only keep chickens as pets and I don't care what they look like.

    I'm not really sure as to the genetics of white silkies and what they hide. I'd guess the offspring might be black or white, possibly with leakage of some sort. You will not get lavenders, but the chicks will be lavender splits.

    Some bad news :( A large snake got into the enclosure and killed the hen. Now I need to find a good silkie hen.
