Is it possible to make a sex link Silkie?
Not with the available colors. You could make one though!
Yes, it would be possible. You could cross a red or buff male with a cuckoo female to get black sex links. You can cross a red or buff male with a pure white female carrying the silver gene to get red sex links.
Quote:Thanks for the info.
How do you tell if the white female has the silver gene?
I think you get that information from the breeder. Or possibly the white chicks will have very white down, where as white chicks with a gold gene would have a slightly yellowish down color to them.
