What color is this Silkie chick? ( Pic included )

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So sorry if I'm not in the right forum, I didn't know where to post this and thought this was pretty close, but I got five silkies at tractor supply, 2 whites, a black, a buff, and this one:


I have no idea what her coloring would be or what it's called. Her feathers coming in are black and goldy-buff colored. If anybody has any idea what color this is and what it's called I would be super happy! I know they aren't show quality silkies or anything since they are just from tractor supply, but I would think even then they should follow silkie coloring, right? Even guesses or suggestions would definitely be appreciated, and thanks so much for any help in advance!

It looks to be a buff, but wings are coming in like a partridge. It will probably be somewhere between the two colors.

That is exactly what I have thought so far! I knew she looked different than the buff chick since she was a little darker and had grey on her back but then I thought the feathering looked sorta like a partridge coming in, but I didnt know if partridge came in barred or striped like that or not. Thanks so much for the help!

Aw thanks so much! I thought she got cuter too, but then I thought it might of been just me, lol. Shes my little baby! I am really hoping for a girl too! So far her comb hasn't starting growing at all so I'm still hoping. The Buff Chick we bought is definitely a rooster, big bubbly comb and wattles already! Thanks again for responding! I really appreciate it!
