    If I mated a buff bantam silkie rooster, to a red bantam silkie hen, what would i get? Half red, half buff?

    Genetics don't work that way. Unless you mean half the chicks will be red and the other half buff? Having said that I don't know enough about chicken genetics to say for sure... I think red is dominant to buff.
