    Hey all I have hatched out these two chicks, they are silkies, but I can't figure out what color they are, can you please help!? The first is a grayish, blueish, blackish coloring, is it a blue? The mom is either a black or white and the dad is a partridge. The other one the parents are the same only it's black and white...similar to a partridge expect instead of being brownish with black it's white with black.

    Thank you! Now is that just the bottom picture? Is the top on also a partridge? There is no pattern on the top pictured birds though.
