    Yeah the guy we got them from mentioned silkies, but he also said they were all pullets, so I wasn't very confident in his information

    I think L and O are 100% roosters. N may be one too... All of them are very beautiful birds, but I think they are all mixed breeds, so I can't tell what they are. J looks crossed with a buff Brahma, but that is all I can identify.:hmm

    Partridge is a pattern. Many breeds have it as a recognized variety and many more have it as an unrecognized project color

    Is partridge the same as double laced?

    No. Partridge is more akin to penciling and has the ground color (reddish brown) on the outside, whereas double laced has the lacing color (black) on the outside edge and can be different colors such as silver, brown, gold, etc.

    Thanks!!! I learned something new today. Kind of similar effect at a glance to the untrained eye, but the difference is quite clear. Thanks again!
