Does Ginger gene "overrides" the dark silky skin colou, is that possible? I would know more about that gene, how does it work in chicken, what it's doing to them.. I have 2 little chicks now, after the hen that is supposed to have that Ginger gene, and white silkie rooster.. they probably have that gene too.. One of them is brown-skined. Milk chocolate i would say.. legs, comb, everything. The down is looking strange - i had chicks like that, just black.. they grow up into silver ones, and this one is brown instead of black. Is that possible with one copy of the gene Ginger? If the little one grows - how should i breed it to maintain that chocolate "Ginger" colour?
