Hi there! I keep mostly silkies, I have splash silkies, black and white. I got my original silkies when they were a couple weeks old already so I didnt see them as newly hatched chicks. I just hatched a few silkie eggs from a hatchery, and they were all supposed to be black silkies, however, they look a bit different from each other, one especially. Can anyone help me identify what colour it will be? Specifically the one with stripes, I read online it may be partridge instead but I wanted to confirm with experienced silkie keepers. I have four in total, one is much darker, two are lighter and then the one with stripes, I expected them to be similar in colour as chicks since they should all end up being black silkies, any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

The first two lighter ones are likely blue.
The one with the chipmunk stripes could be a blue or a silver partridge, but may very well end up feathering in black.
Last one is black. :)
