Let me start by saying I'm not looking to show my silkies. I don't have SQ birds. Yet. The ones I have are PQ, and I'm not planning to sell eggs. This is just thinking about possibilities for my own enjoyment in my own flock... I have a pretty little partridge pullet. I think her color is her best quality. She came from a pen of b/b/s and white birds, when I was trying to buy b/b/s silkie eggs. What a surprise it was to have a partridge pop out! So that's her genetics - I assume one parent was recessive white, and the other was b, b or s. This picture is not recent, but it is my most accurate one for her color. The next batch of eggs I bought, trying to get b/b/s, has given me a little splash cockerel (now 4 months old) with a lot of red bleeding through. So will these two bred together possibly produce blue partridge chicks? If not, what? And how badly will his red pass on if bred with a black hen? Thanks!
