    Does anyone know if you can hatch white silkie bantams if your hen is a black silkie and your roo is a blue silkie, or vice versa?

    If this happened to you chances are its a splash. And if it happened then your black is actually a very dark blue.

    Your best bet is to find a breeder near enough to you that you can go and buy the colors you want. Most have at least some birds that are pet quality that need homes.
