    I got this little one about 2 months ago after figuring out my white silkie is a roo, what do you think this one might be? I was TOLD it was going to be a partridge, uh, no, it's not, lol!! Any guesses on coloring/gender? It has taken a liking to all my younger chicks and lets them sleep under it, so i'm crossing my fingers it's not another boy... silkies are so hard to find around here and i can normally only manage to snag one at a time...

    It looks like a grey partridge. And it is hard to tell the gender by the pictures.

    She/he hatched on April 21, so just a little over 2 months, i know that's early to tell, but my roo was already starting to make funny sounds at that age, and she is sooo quiet... [​IMG]

    Sorry it's blurry, we were having a bit of a disagreement over what we should be doing, hopefully you can see what you need to see. [​IMG]

    she looks exactlly like my 3 and im saying 3 because 2 of mine have just started laying an egg here and there (im guessing its their first lay considering the size of the eggs lol) i got mine last week and the person i got them from said they are lavender? and approx 13 weeks old so good luck [​IMG]

    Still kind of hard to tell (sense pic is blurry) but the comb looks kinda big.. im kind of thinking roo, sorry! But wait and let it grow once it gets older it will either lay an egg or crow.

    Quote:This chick isnt lavender as lavender should be an even color all around the body.
