    $10 for a dozen of these eggs. Anyone wanting to work on mottled silkies, here would be your start! The roo is a showgirl and he is SO SWEET natured and a VERY GOOD BOY!!! Couldn't ask for a nicer rooster, ever! He is in with my mottled cochin girls. Babies would likely hatch out all solid black, all split for mottled, and whatever other color genetics this roo carries. I don't know yet. If you cross the F1 (first generation) babies you should get some mottled, silkie feathered chicks tha would need some work to get back to silkie standard, but it's a start! Need to ship Tuesday. First one who posts "SOLD" on this thread is the official buyer. Shipping is $11 with delivery confirmation. Cold packs available $2/each.

    Daddy: Daddy has excellent toe separation, by the way, and a pea comb. It is hard to find Showgirl roos with this dark of neck pigment. It is a good start at least. You saw it on BYC first!

    Hey Patty,

    Got the show-chins in the incubator. Forgot to reply to your pm so, sorry I hate it when people do that to me. It's crazy here right now.

    My incubator is full now, so unfortunately, no room for more eggs. I need to go study up on mottled genetics. Then NN gene is easy to get back in, it's the motteling that's the issue.

    mottled is recessive. If both parents show it, all babies show it. If one parent carries and the other does not, no babies show it but all carry it. If one shows it, one carries it, half the babies will show it, the other half will carry it. If both parents don't show it but carry it, 25% will show it, 50% will carry it but not show it, and $25% will not carry it at all, but you will have no way of knowing which is which, so crossing split x split mottled gets you 75% unknown splits and 25% mottled. Hope that helps some.

    I have no IDEA what colors the roo carries. Maybe Chef can chime in here and tell us what colors he got from him when he used him to make more showgirls... Chef? Did you get any splashes or partridges out of him? Inquiring minds want to know... Thanks AGAIN for such a great guy. He might be my favorite rooster. (SSSsshhhhh!!!! not so LOUD!) [​IMG]

    Quote:Well let me think. I bred him to my white silkie who was said to be hatched from showgirl parents, and I bred him to my partridge showgirl. I got a couple partridge showgirls, a few white showgirls, and a few white silkies. A fairly even mix of all. No other colors beside white and partridge. Also I didn't hatch to many eggs from them maybe 16 or so. Hope this helps.

    No... but do you know of any colored babies you had directly from the showgirl roo in this thread? If they were all white, then we don't know any more. If some were partridge directly fathered by him, then we would know he carreid partridge. If any were splash, we would know he carries at least blue, If any buff, he would carry buff. Sometimes you can get partridge from buffs and buffs from partridge/buff parings. I saw you had different colored showgirls but I wasn't sure if you bought them or bred them and if you bred them, if my new roo was the daddy.
