    Hi,
    Was wondering if any Silkie breeders can help us figure out what these chicks are. They are coming out of our BBS pen. I have only had 3 ever hatch like this. Does anybody else ever hatch these out of their BBS pens and what do they feather out to look like? Thank You very much for any help. We appreciate it!!!

    By far, I am NOOOO Silkie expert, but what about Silver Partridge? Whatever it is, it has the MAJOR CUTE factor going on there! [​IMG]

    Quote:We did not have our porcelain project pen set up at that time. I know for a fact these chicks are out of our BBS pen. We are very good at labeling all of our eggs.

    Thats what I was thinking because you see little white tips on the wings and that is indicative of a color like that....but no 100% just a hunch
