    I wish someone would create a mottled silkie! i bet the color would be beautiful, but how hard would it be to do? has any one had an accidental mating that came close to silkie feathering but a mottle color ? if so could you post a pic? i'd love to see one. [​IMG]

    I don't have a mottled silkie, but I seem to have a barred rock, silkie, EE mix that looks pretty interesting! [​IMG]

    I think that's called a cuckoo silkie if I'm not mistaken.
