    Is she Silver Penciled?
    I just got her yesterday. The guy said she was a Silver Laced. They are from Ideal Poultry who sells Silver Penciled and Birchen.
    Any help would be much appreciated![​IMG]

    she is silver pinceled

    berchen would have a black body with silver hackel

    and silver pinceled is the same color pattern as parterage with a gray and black dobel lacing like a dark brahma

    She is penciled. Birchens are like reverse columbians, the body is black and the hackles are silvery-white.

    Oh, and her being a different color doesn't make her a different breed. Her breed is cochin, no matter what her color is. So you're just asking what color she is :)

    x3 dark brahma is also a pencilled bird.

    The pencilling refers to the light lacing on her body feathers - not as think as lacing, like it's drawn on with a pencil.

    Pretty girl, congratulations. [​IMG]
