    I am doing blue/splash, but thinking about adding gray/calico. That is why I am wondering if anyone knows it gray/blue would breed well.

    this is why I like bearded silkies better :/ He's not 'that' bad. Looks pretty gangly though. I've seen worse :) Are your chickens as obsessed with mulch as mine are? Can't use it in my flower bed. They go crazy :rolleyes:
