Who has RED silkies?
Can you post pictures?
You might want to look at feathersite's nice pics too.
I have a few red ones. Their color is a lot more deep and intense than just buff. Buff is almost like a pale yellow.
I'd like a find a nice red hen to breed to my partridge red roo.
His dad was a nice clear red silkie and the mom was a partridge/black.
Quote:What a handsome boy!
Quote:Those look buff, not red. Red is much darker.
Buff is not pale yellow. It is defined as "an intermediate shade of orange yellow with a rich golden cast, not so intense as to show a reddish tinge, nor so blanched as to resemble lemon or light yellow." [page 248 of the Bantam Standard, 2005 edition, "A Glossary for Bantam Chickens."]
Here is another reference to Red silkies.
Who owns that red?
