Generally speaking, what does it take to create a porcelain silkie? What do you cross to create it?
My inquiring mind would like to know, too.
It looks like you would cross lavender with partridge or or blue partridge to me. just my opinion
This was partridge to partridge/gray-partridge.
Porcelain to Porcelain works! HaHa. Actually though, it can pop up from breeding Lavender to Light Buff, but it is not a perfect Porcelain in most cases.
Im hoping SonoranSilkies will get on here an enlighten us! I also want to know how a cuckoo is created. I like the unique ones
Quote:Haha! Yes but if you don't have any to start with... Puts one in a bit of a predicament!
Here are some helpful threads...
I am almost 100% certain that the cuckoo required an outcross to another breed, it isn't as easy as crossing one preexisting silkie color to another. Now that there are cuckoo silkies, you can cross them on black and back on cuckoo. You could breed them to blues, but then you don't get nearly as much definition for the cuckoo striping in the silkied feathering.
To make a Porcelain Isabelle Silkie you need a Buff with two Lavender Dilutions.
