    I will take picks as soon as they hatch. I think my biggest task is going to be not mixing porcelain and blue genes. The dilutes don't do well together. Might have to pick one or the other to work with.

    My two cuckoo eggs are developing well. If all works out I'm going to try to create a auto sexing silkie with black, blue and slash cuckoo silkies. I'll keep my porcelains but won't mix them with anything else. Might get a couple of white silkies to keep my paints going and to out cross every 4th generation for fertility. I'm so excited!

    I miss my blue cuckoos, I wish I had the space to start another pen of them. This was the only pic I could find of any of them. His comb was way to red and he found a different home, but he was a character!

    I bred porcelains for a while too.

    I got rid of all my project colors when I decided to start a Sizzle project. I sure do miss them!
