    I got 6 mixed day old silkies today. (SO EXCITED) I'm pretty sure that I have 3 partridge and a blue. The other two I thought were whites, but then I read something about a lavender? Maybe a white and a lavender?

    I think they are a white and a splash. Where did you get them from?

    I think the yollowish/cream one is a buff or white and the smoky gray could be lavender or splash where did you get them?

    I had one the same color, was so thrilled I got a lavender....then it got one little spot, then another, and another.
    Splash!

    Oh right! I've been looking around and I think you are right - Splash. I'm pretty excited to have little spotty one.

    ...I know the yellowish one will either be a White or Buff. I had to leave my partner with them and head back to work with just a few photos...so I will look at it more when I get home.

    Thanks you guys for your help! ♥
