    Generally speaking, what does it take to create a porcelain silkie? What do you cross to create it?

    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. [​IMG]

    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.
