    I have this Silkie pullet and I am not sure wheather or not she is a Smutty Buff or a Light Partridge. I like what she is looking like type wise, but her color is concerning me. Please let me know what you think.

    Smutty buff. She is very pretty, though, even with the smut.

    I thought she could have been partridge because she has all thoughs darker crest feathers coming in and she has like patterening on the wings. So shes a buff not a light partridge.

    It sounds so rude to call her smutty, lol. She is an adorable shade of buff? [​IMG]

    Pretty bird!

    You could clean up that 'smut' if you breed her to a lav.
