    what does size a and size b mean in seramas?
    When breeding silkies do you have to mix colors to get another color? what i mean by that is do you mix a black and a white to get a gray. do you breed a black and a partridge and get a white. do u breed a black and black and end up with white chicks? or do you have to make it pure and mix white and white to get white chicks and black to black to get black chicks. I am confused and really need help with these questions. sorry the format of the question is a little confusing... [​IMG]

    Silkies:
    white X white=white
    you can mix blue black and splash and you will get blue black and splash chicks
    partridge X partridge=partridge
    black X black=black
