I have just incubated a few silkie eggs. (all from one pair) The rooster was a buff bearded silkie and the hen was a grey/blue bearded silkie! out of all the eggs i incubated the eight chicks that hatched were the same as the hen! Just wondered why was this and also if i was to breed a buff roo for the chicks i have hatched would there offspring still be grey or would it be 50/50? Just wondered?.
