I just replied as he did. I guess I can fix it.
P.S. I've seen people with their emails as their Status Message.
Its personal preference, I think. Some people are comfortable with it, others aren't. Plus it could save you from extra spam in the future if you were more private about it. No worries I think!

Just wanted to post this partridge chick I hatched today, it's super dark!

I've never hatched a partridge as dark as this one.

If it keeps the dark colouration in it's adult feathers and it's female, I think I'll keep for breeding.

Also, I love the toes!

This hatch was a pretty poor one (only 3 out of 5 hatched) I lost 2 chicks at the end, I'm going to have to double check my incubator is working correctly.

The other two chicks were gold which I'm keeping the golds till they're old enough to sex as a BYC member is hoping to get them if they're female.

Also, Thankyou to everyone that said they liked my breeding pens!

It's a pretty one. Love the chipmunk stripes on it's back. The golden one is pretty cute also.

I love it's colour, I was confused as to what colour it was at first :lol:

Here's the other partridge I hatched on Christmas Day, I've got an odd feeling this one is a Pullet. Depending on how this one turns out, I may keep it too, it's wings are coming in quite nice.

What lovely pictures! Your darker chick in your other post actually looks like some of the American partridge Silkie chicks, which turn out much darker.
