    I wanted to share some pics, these 4 gals [​IMG] came from ideal, the feed store ordered them for me. I two of the colors (I think) are partridge and buff. Can anyone guess the other colors?

    I think this is the partridge

    I think this is the buff, check out the crest, does anyone know why it's so much bigger?

    I don't know this one maybe blue or grey?

    And this one could be white, or blue I think

    I'm not sure, but they are soooo cute. We should be getting our silkies at the end of the month. Can't wait!

    I believe the greyish one is called splash. I have two chicks a week and a 1/2 hold that look exactly the same.

    You have 2 reds, 1 blue, and 1 buff/white. Cute babies!

    Edited to add: The one with the larger head has a vaulted skull. This usually makes for a larger crest, but be careful, as they will be much more susceptible to head injuries.
