I know nothing about silkies, but I have a silkie and a showgirl cockerel. Actually they belong to my 7 yr old son. He want to get a few more and I would like to get some hens for laying and breeding. The silkie boy is white and the showgirl, blueish grey (not sure what it would be called). Now for the questions, they have been together for a while and seem to get along, I would like to keep them that way and keep all of my sons birds together. If I put silkie girls in with them, will I get silkies and showgirls. I thought I had read that they would throw both. Like if the showgirl and a silkie hen bred, I could get either, or would it be a mutt. The whole thing is a little confusing to me and I want to understand it before I go there, b/c I am trying my hardest to keep my breeds as pure as I can. Also, what colors would you recommend, b/c once again, I don't know how the genetics of silkies work. Thanks in advance! ETA: wanted to clarify that currently I have two boys, I didn't make that really clear.
