    I have these two beautiful white silkie cockerels from show quality lines - 5 months old and very sweet. Can someone take them? I'm in Sebastopol. wish I could post a pic, but email me at [email protected] and I will send you some.

    You can actually see them in my profile pic - they are inseparable - sleep cuddled up at night. They really need a happy home!

    I have caught the silkie bug. I currently have 3, 2 partridge and 1 blue. I have fallen so in love with these little darlings that I am hatching some eggs from Golden Egg Farm. I have a fondness for the white ones. I lost 2 whites recently to some kind of predator. I was thinking that I would raise whatever I am able to hatch and maybe keep 4 or 5, but now I am thinking that I will keep them all. If I wanted to start a breeding program (my daughter wants to show them), what is the best color for roosters if I want to raise white, black, and blue?
    Also, does anyone know where I'd be able to find a breeding chart showing what color parents will produce certain colored chicks?
