    Here is the Lemon Spangled Hamburg for my projects.[​IMG]



    Here is my lemon Silkie/d'uccle cross. Carrying the silver gene over buff

    [​IMG]

    And expecting my first three babies from these two in two weeks. It will be interesting to see the color from this cross, as I don't believe she simply carries the buff gene, as some have stated. I know he's carrying something that affects the bright yellow pumpkin coloring.
