  1. Hey all!!! Had a quick question! How do pen your silkies? I specifially want to pen them by color for breeding purposes, but not for sure on how to pen them. For example, I heard to put blue in with splash because if splash mate with splash it will wash out the color? And how specifically do you pen them? 1 roo or is 2 okay? I've done research and curious though exactly how a lavender and porcelain silkie is produced. Everything I've researched is so technical. I get it's all genetics, but I just need some more help and any info is greatly appreciated! [​IMG] Thanks a BUNCH!!!! [​IMG]

    I feel you there! The genetics thing is very confusing!
