After a hiatus from BYC, a family death, minimal internet access and one cancelled order from mypetchicken a while back... I am back from my great grandmother's funeral Sad... But on the bright side I came home to find that my boyfriend got me some chicks from a hatchery! 6 Silkies, 2 Polish, 2 RIR, and 2 EE's ! I've been looking all over for chicks but lately with so much family drama couldn't get any! I am skeptical on my Silkie's colors though? My favorite is a little white guy (or girl) now named "Shimmer" and the others all are blue and some look to be partridge (chipmunk coloring) but the blues feathers coming in are blue and almost a creamy brown mix ?? I heard of Blue Partridge from one lady I spoke with.. Are there really Blue Partridge colored Silkies? If there are can someone post pics? I am going to post pics of my chicks tomorrow! What an awesome coming home present though!
