    Hello everyone. These babies are almost 2 weeks old. I was hoping for thoughts on their coloring. The first pic is my partridge. He makes me wonder though because he seems to show some blue coloring. Blue partridge? The grey babies are growing whitish wing feathers. I was hoping they would stay grey but with the white wings, will they end up being white? Such fun!

    I would guess the grey ones could be splash, paint, lavender or something similar ^^ My blue partridge chick didn't look like that but who knows!

    Thanks for your reply. [​IMG] I'm still holding out hope that they will not go white. I love white but I have a few already
