Let's say you breed a white Silkie with excellent type to a black or blue one. The result could be anything since the white Silkie is hiding unknown colors. However, I have read that black or blue chicks commonly result from this cross. My question is, if the cross did result in a non-patterned black or blue would these chicks then have the normal, predictable genetic characteristics of BBS? The reason I'm interested is that type is generally better in the whites, so it would possibly be a way to improve type in BBS. What do you think?
