    I was wondering If you guys could help with a few silkie color questions.

    If you breed these colors what color will you get????

    Black x white=
    Blue x white=
    Splash x white=
    Splash x black=
    Splash x blue=
    White x cuckoo=
    Splash x cuckoo=
    Blue x cuckoo=
    Black x cukoo=

    I have black, blue, white, splash, and cuckoo silkies. They are going to be seperated by colors in there new HUGE coop, but I was wondering what I would get if I bred a couple of different colors together. If you have any pics you would like to show of what the mixed colors would look like or just a couple of answers to my question that would be great!!! Thanks alot [​IMG]

    Assuming the first listed is the roo......

    Black x white= if it's recessive white you get Black if not you get White
    Blue x white= if recessive white you get blue and black, if not, white
    Splash x white= if recessive, blue, if not, white
    Splash x black= blue
    Splash x blue= splash and blue
    White x cuckoo= if recessive, cuckoo (roos) and black, if not, you guessed it, white LOL
    Splash x cuckoo= blue cuckoo (roos) and blue
    Blue x cuckoo= blue cuckoo (roos), blue, black and cuckoo (roos)
    Black x cukoo= cuckoo (roos) and black (pullets)

    Of course, this is assuming that there are no hidden genes that could get matched up also [​IMG]
