Paint Silkies are created by breeding black and dominant white silkies. Paint feather coloring is fascinating and a bit confusing. Most white silkies are recessive white, but a dominant white is needed for paints. Chicks who receive a copy of black and a copy of the dominant white gene from their parents will have the paint feather pattern. Chicks who receive black from both parents will be black and those who receive two copies of dominant white will have all white feathers. The chicks who have one copy of each gene look painted because the dominant white doesn’t completely cover the black, leaving patches of black feathers among the white. The amount of black spots can vary both in number and size, so each paint silkie will look unique!
