    Well. they are young, but somewhere had said that the females have darker coloring and males are lighter. I have one that is rather dark and one that is really light. I just wanted to see if they are true. It would be great if i have a pair:)smilesmilesmilefl fl fl (They are the tan ones)

    a few days old. less than a week. But read somewhere on byc that the Partrdge silkies tend to be darker if they are hens..

    This does not always hold true, and usually thats when they start feathing in well, even then its a typically thing, not an always thing. [​IMG] Wait a few weeks, with partridge they color in differently at a few weeks old.
