Is this possibly similar to porcelain?

    I have not posted a mystery chick in a while but got some others now. These chicks all hatched white and I found that "unusual" when they hatched so I am certain that they came from the black pen again. I am getting a new rooster this year so will sell the older but check out these. What would you call them? The first one is a female for sure, number 2 is a few months younger still and a little different in coloring. Black parents have Turk in their lines, which had black and white crosses in the heritage. And, I was told also carry lavender. What would you call this? I go with calico for lack of a better term but they sure are pretty. They are both bearded, though the second one is sparse still.

    yeah, I could see how you could interpret the color "Wheaten" in those pics. Hmmm, its interesting. I do agree it does have similarities.

    In Netherlands, breeders have "Creame" silkies. They look exactly like them!

    so I have been looking up "wheaten" and "Salmon" which are pretty close to the older pullet I have. Interesting indeed......

    If by turk in their lines, you mean Naked Neck, then thats probably where the color is coming from.
