    [​IMG] anyone have any pics of what the cross will look like...

    will some come out splash or white - or be a lighter splash than the rooster?

    so by crossing them is that a good way to get the splash showgirl I am looking for?

    you would get all blue offspring, however some white silkies are masking buff, so in that case you would get blue birds with some buff leakage.

    Quote:I'm sure know this mountaintop silkies, but I'm saying this to Muscovies, Showgirls are bred from crosses between silkies and Turkens then the offspring are bred back to silkies for many generations.
