    you all were so helpful with the others, thanks for the link, that I thought I give this a shot. I wasn't sure if Julep was going to be black, seems kind of light, or something else. Is almost 2 weeks old, girl I hope.

    They are Partridge Silkies. They will stay about that color.

    thank you, all the pics I've seen of partridge silkies seem so dark in color that I wasn't sure.

    Partridge silkies vary quite a bit in darkness. Some pictures that I've seen are pretty light, while others are really dark. I think it's kind of hard to judge that little how dark a partridge will turn out.

    Go to www.hattricksilkies.com, and look at the pictures of their partridges. I think there's quite a variation.

    Partridge colors can range from very light (almost buff) to very dark (almost black), although most are somewhere in between.

    The new pic doesn't look very black to me. I'm thinking it's a blue.

    I was afraid to hope, I REALLY wanted a blue. Now I have 2 white, 2 partridge, and a blue!
    I am so in love with my silkies.
