    Or are they just a random mixed color? I have two of these silkie X oegb and they look almost identicle. They are the sweetest little things. They still have their chick voice. I can't wait until they're grown up! They both have fuzzy legs and toes and beards and crests. I'm not sure if their father is my black silkie or my white silkie. Both are bearded. The mother is my BB red OEGB. Here's some pictures! Does anyone think they are a certain color?

    Techinically just a mixed color. What color are the OEGBs that could be the parents ? I see some Partridge pattern there so I would guess that the silklie father was the white one and that he is probably masking Partridge.

    Thats what I was thinking she would be, I'd say the white silkie was the father and that he is masking Partridge. And breed to BBRed should give a color like that.
