    I am pretty sure the "marbled" one's color is called Splashed.

    Thanks! I was kinda thinking that too and the only reason I don't think she is a splash is because I have seen a splashes hard feathers and her hard feathers looked marbles not at all like a splashes

    And when she was younger she didn't hatch looking like a splash I was thinking partridge but I didn't no they came in silver that's why I was confused thanks!

    She looks very similar to my silver partridge hen. This is her when she was about 4 months old.
