    I have been making some strange colors this year.
    First of all (and I know its still a bit early to tell) Did I make a painted Silkie? or is this just a heavy marked splash?

    Next strange color has been diluted Partridge.
    Instead of Black and red they are Blue and Buff...We made about 3 of these and plan to keep all three!

    Are you breeding them color to color, or letting all of the colors mix together?

    The strange little smoke colored chicks seem to be turning white. Thats a wait and see thing for us. The buffish colored one looks to be a dirty white but not crisp white nor buff. I will have to take updated pics of these.

    I have them all in the same pen. Hope to remedy that next year.
    Black White and Red roos
    White, Black out of White/Black cross and Lavender hens
    I had to separate my other breeds before I could separate colors.
