    OK sorry for the photos, the flash failed on a few I snaped.
    These two "girls?" are aprox 15 weeks old and are from unknown origin but may be silkie crosses. I assumed they were ladies when I first saw them, but now I'm not too sure.

    the patern is "partridge" though....I think they are really cool looking. oh btw, its hard to see, but their lil feet are very heavily featherd

    they almost look like silver penciled. Partridge is simular, but tinted brown isnt it? and I think Campines are more barred pattern....

    Think they are crossed with standard or bantam?

    Where did you get them from? I'd ask them.

    this is a silver penciled bird:

    sorry Im SLOW to respond [​IMG]. They are from unknown origins, but as far back as I know, they where "silkies" but thats as far as it goes since I believe they were farmers market specials.
    I also believe they are mixed with other bantams, as they are no larger than the pure silkie they were hatched with.
