    Gray silkies have been an accepted variety for many years.
    There is a complete color description in The American Bantam Association Book Of Standards or you can view it on this site at this thread.

    Quote:I am confused by that answer.
    Blue X White does not give you certain White and Gray x any other color besides White will not give you Gray.
