    There's no way to say unless you know what genes they carry.... if the black has all kinds of hidden genes... then anything could pop out [​IMG]

    Forgot to say that if you breed the offspring BACK to the Silkie you will start getting more silkie feathered birds [​IMG]

    You shouldn't get any defects, unless it's something being carried by one or both of the parents.
