    I have some new babies!!! I believe I have a partrige silkie, blue silkie, and the third??? Is it a cochin?? The wing feathers are coming in and it looks laced (if that's the right word). And little feathering on his/her legs.. I would so love to hear your thoughts - thank you!!

    Can anyone confirm on the colors of the silkies? Blue and partridge?

    Thanks!

    Quote:It may be the way the color is coming across my screen, but the stripped one could be a gray silkie. The portion of the other one in the first picture does look blue.

    Okay, I just checked the one w/ chipmunk markings, and his/her wings do look grey! I didn't know there was a grey silkie...hmm... the tips of the wings are lighter though. Does that mean anything? What are the color differences between a blue and a grey? I thought blue was grey..LOL.. Thanks for letting me pick your brain!

    They are certainly very pretty little birds whatever they are. Makes me want to run out and get some baby chicks!
