Is this chick blue or lavender?
Most likely blue, lavenders are lighter. What color are the parents?
It's blue. I've had an assortment of colored silkies and that one looks blue.
How hard is it to get blue coloring?
If you have the right chickens and you know what colors to breed it's a 50-50 chance you will get blue. Sometimes you will get black,splash or grey/white
If your just one of those people (like me) who have an assortment of colors (buff,black,white,blue ex.) and who arnt going for a certain color,just chicks, then it's more of a 10%-25% chance of getting blue.
Hen partridge and roo blackish grey
New to breeding silkies
Since your roo is blackish grey then your chick will possibly be grey-ish blue vice versa. Never would of thought a partridge hen and blackish grey roo would make a blue chick! How lucky
Well i know that to get partridge you have to have blue genes right. I also have a black hen
