    Can anyone tell me if the chicks in the second pic are called "splash"? I've heard the term but don't know what a splask looks like.

    Congratulations. I have 6 - 2 week old silkies and I LOVE THEM!! They are the cutest. I cant decide really who are cuter - my 6 silkies or my 5 - 2 week old polish babies = but both breeds are pretty special.

    Glad you had a good hatch.

    The second pic would probably be partridge, not splash.
