Welcome to CHICKENCOLOURS.COM dedicated to chickens, their breeding, their colours, their beauty, their surprises.
Primary purpose of this website was promoting and selling the super simple book Genetics of Chicken Colours - The Basics. (btw also suitable for profs).
Meanwhile I’ve written more chicken books:
- The Serama breed book
- The Serama colours book
- Silkies and Silkie bantams
- Genetics of the Chicken Extremes
This site is simple, scratch around a bit to see if there’s any feed for you?
Or bookmark it, in case someting new hatches.
I made the page a bit larger so I can add more recent stuff on it, otherwise this page doesn’t change much although new eggs are added.

Silkies and Silkie bantams state of the art Silkie book ever.
Its as FAT as Genetics... all full colour high resolution digital print super sharp photos. Breathtaking photos by Angela Schouten of her Silkies in France and photos of lots of other breeders, including new photos of US Silkies.
Added hundreds of photos of Silkies the last 5 years taken of breeding projects. I quit counting pics at 1000. Pages: 194, Silkies from Europe, USA, Japan, China. Ancient history, modern history. Of course their colour genetics and extremities easy explained as you’re used from me. Schemes for easy look up, explanations in words and drawings, selection of specific colours, the troubles, abnormalities, the odd, and rare Silkies from all over the world... more details of the paint Silkes as well (the whites with large black spots, see cover). Click for preview.
