    i have a bunch of sillkies of different colors (white, partridge, blue, buff, and cuckoo) and if i was to incubate their eggs what colors would i get? which color will would be more dominant? or would i get mixed colors like half bule and half white?

    Well I find White and Partridge are dominant colors (though thats only from my experience) When you cross a white with another your not going to get a white bird with colored patches. If that were the case, Paint silkies would be so much easier to breed!
