I know that the Citron Mille Fleur D'uccle has been slow in arriving to American shores, so I was wondering if there have been any breakthroughs on our "projects". Have some succeeding in this endeavor? This is my endeavor: Blue Mille Roo to my Buff Silkie/gold-necked d'uccle hen The chicks all came out similiar, all looking like blue millies, except one reg mille. Then there's that...one....silver...chick... I would have thought that the buff hen would have added the cream gene, but maybe she's got silver in her background? Her mother was a simple buff silkie. So this is the crew now, at about two weeks. I have recouped normal d'uccle combs, regular skin color, and vulture hocks on all except one whose lacking hocks. Note that the silver chick has now developed a very light tan to his wings, similiar to the effect of silver on buff. Am I correct? Do I now have the silver, or the cream? Then there's the question of why all the chick down came out looking like they were blue millies, now they are bright, light tan and very black stripes. I guess the blue never made an appearance? So, you gold and silver experts out there, help out us newbies on what silver/gold chicks look like, and how YOUR silver/gold projects are coming along.
