Hi all,

I have recently bought my first silkies, I have 5 black, 2 white and 1 splash, unknown genders but according to breeders guesstimate 1 black roo and 1 white roo. They also informed me that I could get a blue from crossing the black with the splash. After learning this I was a) wondering how the partridge and buff Silkie came about, since they are so different in colour, and b) wondering how you can make a partridge or buff coloured Silkie.
Also, if anyone could do one of those genetic breakdown with colour and what creates what that would be really helpful too.
