    Would anyone happen to know what color my new little Silkie is or will be?

    She just hatched this morning, along with 4 whites (all solid) and a black. Do you think she will lose the spots and be all white or end up partridge, splash or spotted?

    The eggs came from silkieluver_07, but I am not sure what colors she has in the pen these came from. Maybe Splash, Lavender, Partridge, Blue and White?

    It'll most likely be a splash. All the one's I've hatched like that were. She's a cutie.

    Awww that would be cool. Thanks [​IMG]

    I have a couple partridge chicks and I know they start out looking much more chipmunk'ish. This one just has spots and no stripes.

    She seems tiny compared to a couple of the others, so I am hoping that means she will turn out to be a 'she' [​IMG]

    "She" is adorable!! It could very possibly be splash. I have two splash boys and two splash girls in the silkie pen. [​IMG]
