    Here are Scooter & Buster. 10 week old silkies. Blue partridge I guess? Their base is blue. I think Scooter might be a Hen, and Buster a Roo.

    2)Buster. He has attitude for sure. Not afraid of anything and bigger than all the rest.

    Not 100% on the color, but I think you're right on the sex. [​IMG]
    Very cute, though!

    Thanks Tori. Do you know where I can see some pics of blue partridge? I get really confused with these mixed colors. I've got a really red/partridge type silkie as well.​

    Quote:Thank you! Seems I have a red partridge here then as well. My little "Forest Gimp" has a bum leg since birth. She is feisty though and adorable. Looks like your red one but is tiny compared to all my others.
