    I had a silkie hatch a few days ago. It is silver with some darker silver looking coloring on it's back. Would this maybe grow up to be a splash? I have not ever had a silkie with more than one color before. I can post pictures if it would help. [​IMG]
    Thanks!

    Looks to be maybe a partridge or just some calico mixed color. I would have to say prolly not a splash. All of my splashes look like a grayish to white color at this age. Partridges usually have a little more brown though, maybe a blue partridge [​IMG]

    I'm thinking a silver partridge, which will be quite pretty!! What an adorable baby!!
