    I have a Porcelein Isable Silkie hen. If I bred her to a buff would I get more porceleins......

    Re: Porcelain SilkiesIsabel is lavender diluted buff. Porcelain, as defined in the standard, is lavender diluted mille fleur. The lavender dilutes the buff in a mille fleur to isabel, the black to lavender and white remains white. As silkie people are using the term, the mille fleur pattern is not involved. Some of the porcelain silkies show more lavender, as in the photo posted by Kinder, some show more isabel, as in the photos I posted. However all of them have some amount of each colour.
