    These two hatched out of some eggs that the seller had marked as Buff. I also got 2 partridge that were supposed to be buff. What color will these two end up being? Calico maybe? Here are shots from diff angles so you guys that are experienced can help me figure out what color I have here, lol. [​IMG]

    They do not look like calico chicks. Calicos look like splash--the red comes in later.

    Yours look like a variation of partridge.

    Thanks guys. The breeder I bought them from has gorgeous stock.
    When they hatched, I couldn't help but think, :Holy vaulted skulls, Batman!" LOL
    I can't wait to what they feather out to be as adults. [​IMG]
