    This is a derivative of greys. They were first shown in 2007 at the PPBA show in Stockton, California. There is a light version and a dark version. Both have grey, black, white and red. The combination of colors is quite stunning in the sun. These are an AOV color.

    Hi- Is mine a tortoiseshell? This is his pic- haven't seen him in person, yet. My friend is giving him to me with 3 hens. She's moving. Anyway, he wasn't bred to be a Tortoiseshell, but someone suggested that it might be his color. I think he looks like one, but I haven't heard of that color Silkie until today, so I'm no expert :) Thanks!
