    I have a white Silkie that came from my blue X buff silkie cross and since it's a recessive gene, I'm wondering if I breed it with another white Silkie, if it'll create all white Silkie chicks, or if there'll be other colors such as blue since it's parents were blue and buff

    White to white should only produce white.
