    I have a few WCBlue Polish roo and Black Silkie hen eggs hatching right now [​IMG] and I think all the roosters will have black/darker skin and the pullets will have light skin, or something like that (?) from what I understand, the the gene that controls the skin color is on the chromosome that controls gender...I think
    also will any be white crested? and I'm assuming 1/2 will be black and 1/2 will be blue, correct?
    and all will be hard feathered. I know.
    Thanks! -Jake [​IMG]
    and don't worry I'll post pics once they come out from under momma! [​IMG]
