    I have a partridge bearded silkie roo and was wondering what color chicks I would get from different colored hens. I have a couple of blue hens now, and am planning on getting a few more hens. What color offspring would I get from the blue hens and what color would I get from a white hen or a red hen? Or is it just better to stick with all the same color birds?

    i would keep them all the same color, unless there's a color you would want to make... like blue partridge... but it will take work... breeding the roo to a blue hen, then taking a blue hen from those two and breeding it back to the roo... stuff like that...

    the possibilities are endless, but you might not always get what you would want to keep...
