Interesting. Looks like another of those where the flocks were crossed with Polish or Silkie at one time. I love the roos in that second picture but the white one is quite stunning as well.

It is very evident of their Silkie background.......an interesting ipso facto is that they lay a very large, extremely white egg in proportion to their size.........................................................................chrisf

Are you referring to the Mapuche or the Mapuche Huestec?

What basis is there to say they have Silkie background?

These Snow Nikkei fowl are the common fowl of the Japanese Nikkei communities of Peru.

They are the descendants of Jitokko chickens brought from Japan in the late 1800's that were bred together with Quetero and Mapuche/Quechua chickens.
Later, in the 1920's Japanese Silky Chickens were brought to Peru and certainly their genes are interspersed as well but the majority of the snowy Nikkei are basically Jittoko Mapuche crosses. Indeed, the Crested Mapuche most likely accrued its crest from the Jittoko as well.

what color egg do these birds lay? also is it true that adding Silkie blood to Aracannas will intensify the blue egg color?
