    and the "honey" looking one lol
    it almost looks like she will be a mix because she looks like she has some blue and other colors in her.

    Blues and Partridge. Partridge can range from very light to dark with some black mixed in,usually on the head, also blue partridge. Yours looks like it has black mixed in.

    Nice![​IMG]

    the funny thing is... where i live were only allowed to have 6 "poultry" per backyard. and already have 4.... and adding these 9 makes 13 [​IMG] lol but whos gonna know [​IMG] its really the dumbest rule ive ever herd of. but i guess i have to wait and see what the turn out is in the silkies. that will depend if i really want to keep them all. and around the 6 months age ill be sure to post lots of pics of them for everyone to help me out and decide [​IMG]

    I have those same color silkies 3 are like the ones you show here but just a tad darker and one is lighter than the others. Can't wait to find out what they will look like. I guess were in this together hahahah

    i know this is a bad shot because of the floor color but this is all ive got
