    It first I thought he was blue wheaten or lemon blue, but after going outside after it rained the other day and I noticed he's mottled or splashed. I think in a silkie it's called porcelain. Is this what color I should call him?
    My silkied hen is barred/cuckoo, if I breed them, they would be sexlinks, right? What color would the chicks be?

    Can't help with the color, but the chicks will be interesting. Do I detect scaley leg mites on the rooster?

    Chicks from this pair will have Silkie feathering. I am not sure about the sex-link question.

    The male chicks will have a white spot on the top of their head, the females wont.

    They both had some serious leg mites when I got them, almost back to normal. It looks like they had them for a while before I got them.[​IMG]

    The roo isn't a recognized color. It looks like they are some kind of bantam game cross. Maybe with some Serama in them at some point. Do they have 4 or 5 toes?
