Paint Silkies

Anyone know anything about the genetics of Paint Silkies? I bought some chicks that are supposed to be Paint and they are white with black spots.  I was sceptical when I bought them because the father was white and black but the mother was black. So I was thinking they were probably really splash, however after doing some reading I've learned that the mother was probably split so she didn't show. But when mated to a pure Paint half of the chicks would be pure and I only picked ones that were spotted. So does anyone know what genes are involved?

Re: Paint Silkies

If anyone is interested. Paint Silkies are Dominant White with black leakage.  For some reason that I'm not clear on some otherwise white Silkies developed "holes" which allowed black to show through. They always breed true.  There combinations of Paint and Black that give you splits which you then breed to keep the paint colour. You have to keep breeding back to black in order to maintain the paint look otherwise the dominant white eventually takes over and they become just white. It's different.

Re: Paint Silkies

These are what I am currently attempting to hatch out. Thanks for the info. I had thought the breeding back to black split was to minimize pigment holes (pale skin/beak/nail patches?). I wasn't aware the white would eventually cover all the black. But what about the white splits? Are they not to be used for breeding?
the parent flock that my eggs came from are paint roo over paint hens.
