    I'm not sure yet, I'm getting them from Tractor Supply and they said they won't know what kind they are getting until they get them.

    Not yet :/ when I called Tuesday morning, they didn't get them. When I called Wednesday, they said they got them Tuesday afternoon and now only had some Brahmas left. So I'm going to hold out until this coming week so I can have a better selection.

    They're adorable! Maybe your mystery color Silkies are blue partridges, they have that look about them. Here's a pick of the first 2 babies I hatched from my own flock. They came from refrigerated pullets eggs (literally the first eggs my girls laid). Its amazing how life finds a way!

    You put eggs in the fridge and they still hatched?! That's amazing! Those are some cute fuzzies too!

    I looked at a blue partridge thread.. I hope you are right they are gorgeous!!
