I know silkie genetics are the same as other breeds but can anyone recommend a book or reference guide. I am fairly new to silkies and I have two silkie hens (white with one paint spot you can barely see and splash) and a blue frizzled rooster and a smooth sizzle cuckoo rooster. I just hatched one batch of chicks from these various pairings and it seems I have white, splash, blue and a few that I am unsure about. I am going to grow them out a few weeks to see if any inherited the frizzled gene from their papas'. Will the cuckoo roo pass on the cuckoo to any of the chicks?
