    Need help with figuring out who to buy a SQ silkie Roo from???? Blue or Splash is fine. I am wanting to breed splash silkies and I need a SQ roo. Which color would be best to get? Blue or splash? I know about the dilution gene in when you breed splash silkies. So should I get a blue roo??? [​IMG]

    What do you currently have?

    If it were me, I would breed blue to blue, or blue to splash. I wouldn't breed splash to splash as you're just creating problems to deal with later on down the line.

    That being said, George Mihalik has great blues, HiHo Silkies has some great blues, Linda Harrison has some great splashes, Fluff-N-Stuff has some great blues, I've got blues and splashes from Peekaboo and they are looking good.

    Since your hens are splash, get a blue rooster.

    If you have the splash hen, I would look for a nice blue roo. Watch how dark of a blue you buy though. You really want a nice slate grey body with nice dark navy hackles.

    I believe its www.silkiesbygeorge.com if not google hiho silkies and link to it from there. Ryanne from Hiho silkies works very closely with George and she has just as nice birds.
