Here’s are the other partridges from the same hatch.

#1 is the one that looks like Hinotori’s double lavender. #2 is even lighter, but does have very faint partridge stripes (as seen below).

#3 & #4 look somewhat similar (when #4 isn’t a blur zooming around the brooder lol), but #4’s stripe colour blends in more with the rest of it’s down. The yellow faces on these two are making me think mum was a possible cross, and has Polish or Sliver Laced something (first thought was Orpington) somewhere hiding in her makeup. But everyone does have all their toes, decent foot feathering, and black skin.

#5 looks the most like a typical partridge Silkie to me, but compared to the lonely blue (carrier) partridge Brahma I have in with them, the one that is crossed out, everyone else looks different ... Blue? Silver? I don’t know. The Brahma are the only partridges I currently have and am familiar with, so the partridge Silkies are a new one for me; colour me intrigued.



What are everyones thoughts?
For anyone looking back at this later on, in case they’re wondering what colours their chicks will be...
#1 did end up being blue cream/porcelain (I don’t have any current pictures of her).
#2 was a splash (roo - sold)
#3 and #4 ended up being Moorhead silver partridge, one Satin and one Silkie. Kept the Satin hoping it wouldn’t be a hen, and at 10.5 weeks we’re pretty sure it is. Her name is Elvira.

I’ve never had a Satin, and I know she’s technically a mutt, but I’m absolutely in love with her, and she’s SO soft! I kept the other as well, but don’t have any current pictures of her either.
And #5 was a partridge (roo - sold)

Personally, I would ask @Hinotori questions re: Partridge Silkies -- they are her "forte."

It's not normal partridge chick coloring. They look like they are from a mixed color flock so could come out as any mixture of color.

John is getting his feathers in and from the few I can see at the moment he is looking like a male!

Looks exactly like his father when he was that age...very alike actually! 😅

John getting his rusty feathers in 😍

I had 4 partridge hatch and it’s looking like all are males. John and the other one his age look identical and the other two younger ones I’m still on the fence with but I’m pretty sure they’re males 🙄

Luckily I have people wanting males!
