    I would also say gray or partridge, and you will love the showgirls. They are my favorite!

    This is the same bird, just different pics at different ages. The one with the roo is her older pic.

    The Lav's are not adults yet, but they are about 4-5 months old and still maturing. So, they have alot of filling in to do.

    They look like they are and will be silver. They have the partidge pattern on their wings but silver color.

    I have a Beautiful Silver chick out of my Partridge Hen and white Rooster. The color is amazing!

    Yours are beautiful!!
