    Wow! I wouldn't mind finding some of those chickens or some hatching eggs myself. They are for sure different and really attractive birds. Thanks for posting the feathersite pics.

    Wow, that is a sweet silkie color! If anyone ever has eggs, I would love to hatch some out. It looks like an extremely diluted splash but sure has strong black. Quite pretty!

    I think I saw the discussion for this gene on Classroom at The Coop by the person who has these Paints. I believe they live in Sweden or one of those countries near by. Very interesting color and may be a mutant gene.
