    Can't tell from that pic. Got a pic of it's back? A Partridge will have very distinct "chipmunk" stripes. Also, a pic of legs and feet will be helpful. Are the legs black? Does it have 5 toes on each foot? Does it have feathering on it's shanks and toes?

    hard to say. However not all partridge chicks will have a distinctive chipmunk stripe, they usually do, but not always. This chick is really light though, it may turn out a blue partridge...what color silkies does the person you got eggs from have?


    whoops we posted a same time. I think that chick will definately have a partridge type pattern.
