    We have 4 silkies. We ordered Blue. I am curious what color you would call the little one with the brown highlights.

    There is another photo with her below.

    My second question is this tall silkie a boy or girl?
    I know it is almost impossible to tell but I had to ask [​IMG]
    They are 13 weeks.

    I think the first one is a pullet. As for color, I would say Blue X Partridge.

    The second one is a roo.

    Yeah, the first one looks like a pullet and the longer legged, less poofy one looks like a cockerel. I think she is either a blue X partridge or black X partridge.

    I was watching the silkies yesterday and realized I cannot tell the different between the tall one above and the other nameless silkie. That little partridge/blue is Maddy and we have a blue/black one named Queen. Both look like Maddy in that they are rounder. But the other two both are walking tall and have similar heads. Um, maybe 2 roos? Time will tell for sure but I do not think I will mention this to my husband.....

    (secretly I am excited we might have at least 1 silkie roo)
