    Here is Sadie or pig pen as we call her. Can you tell what color she is? She is about a month. (Saying she in hopes that it is true [​IMG] )

    My guess is buff. A partridge would be darker than that, I think.

    I'm not sure, but I've got one that looks just like her. Seems to dark to be buff, too light to be partridge. So cute.

    My vote is partridge. Too dark for buff. [​IMG]

    Um, could she be a red silkie?

    Partidge with a lot of gold. Partridges vary greatly, and she happens to be one with a lot of gold in the hackles.

    And by the looks of the down, she may be a blue partridge (areas that are normally black will be diluted to a blue as adult plumage.)

    I agree with Chris, partridge.
