    I know recessive white carries s+ but what else? I'm pretty sure buff is the wheaten gene e^wh but I've seen many people from the UK with Gold Silkies, that just look like Buff Silkies. But they used these "Gold" Silkie roos in Red Sex link crosses with Light Sussex hens, and made sex linked offspring. So does Buff also carry s+?
