OK, so I fail to collect an egg ONE DAY , and the next day my Silkie, Ursula is sitting on 2! She is white and her beau is my Calico Bantam Cochin. Who knows? These may not even hatch. I'm curious what the babies would look like though. I have looked around here and seen some of the Silkie/Cochin crosses, and they are ADORABLE! I guess I have 2 questions: 1- I have read that White is a mask color, and so it's hard to know genetically what they will produce from the genes "underneath" so to speak. Is this true, and if so, in all breeds? Does anyone know about the Calico color? How does that translate to the offspring? 2- I also read that w/this cross, skin color will be different between the sexes. THAT would be convenient! If so, how do I know which is which? This is Ursula and this is Samurai (Sammy) They are in LOVE!
