Just out of curiosity, What other colors have come out of mixed pens? For example a buff x blue
buff x black
blue x partridge

I'm just getting into silkies to and plan on just doing the B/B/S in one pen. Whites in another but I do have a buff hen and a partridge what I believe to be a Roo but to young to tell yet.
Just curious as to what I could get if I mixed them in down the road.
I think I heard of a Cuckoo silkie???
Does crossing white with anything other than white get you anything different?

Not always, I paired a splash cockerel "Georgie" who kept throwing to dark of a pattern splash babies on good 50/50 & blue hens, with a washed out splash hen "Wendy" and the babies came out perfect for the CA owner who went on to win pretty big with those birds on the west coast.

Sometimes you need to just mess with breeding the birds and keeping good notes on the results.
