    Quote:If you bred two F1s together you would get 25% silkie feathered birds. If you breed the F1 to a Silkie, you would get 50% normal feathered, and 50% silkie feathered.

    Thank you! I will have to try that in a couple months when the F1's become old enough.

    I wonder how many times you would have to line breed the father back to the daughters to get the original bird (most like the father)?

    Quote:Hi jacking your thread! The babies I got from you are getting so big. I will try to get some new pics soon. Ugly Girl (really the name just suits her) is doing so very well. I was afraid she would be at the bottom of the pecking order but she can take care of herself just fine. Lays an egg every other day too! She eats a lot of the time. I think the cross beak makes her take longer but I leave food out so she just snacks along. Oh, my tolbunt pullet squatted yesterday when I went to pet her back and then today the roo crowed. He scared himself and then he tried again. It is hideous. I hope he gets better...but while I was talking to him he got excited and grabbed the crest of one of my GL's...but then he had no clue what to do even though she squatted! Ah well. He will figure it out.
