Pure Silkie cross Half Silkie

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Greetings all,

 

   I have a purebred white silkie Roo from a respected breeder and have collected fertile eggs from my white silkie, partridge silkie and a first generation cross silkie (all pictured below).

Will I be able to tell apart the chicks and know which ones are 3/4 silkie when they are fully grown?
Also will these be 2 white and 3 partridge? (I also have another partridge looking one under a heat light as it was being pecked)

 

Thank-you in advance for your time and response,

   First time poster, Joel.

 

(pet quality partridge)

 

(half silkie which came from partridge hen I believe)

 

(pet quailty white)

 

(5 of the 6 offspring from all three birds) (6 hatched out off 10 eggs)

Welcome to BYC, you may or may not be able to tell the difference if the 3/4 feather in flat vs. silky you will know right away but if they are silkied I don't know how you would tell the difference.
