Blue to Partridge if you want Blue Partridges
Red to Buff if you need to darken up the Buffs or lighten the Red

Hey jackrooster - just a thought for you - Ideal is a great hatchery - it's where I get order all my laying flock birds, and I highly recommend them for great egg layers. However, their Silkies are notoriously of variable type - you might get some really bad chicks quality-wise, or maybe you'll get something okay. For example, look at these two silkie chicks from Ideal - totally different type-wise, but they're from the same place. I'm just mentioning this in to try to save you some disappointment if you're expecting something specific from your silkies. If it doesn't matter to you, please disregard!
