Silkie chick & colour question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My Silkie hens have finally started hatching some of their eggs! I have 2 hens and a rooster, all are partridge coloured. Yesterday I found this little guy under the hen, and is it possible I got a white bird from 2 partridge parents? I'm new to breeding chickens and want to get a better understanding of their colour genetics. Thanks in advance!

To me it looks more like a buff. You might get a better answer in the breeding and genetics forum.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.
