    There are 3 Silkie chicks in these photos (along with two smaller "rehab" chicks) that I am wondering if anyone could guess as to their future color? I have several blue/gray/silver??? ones that are older I need help on too but will put those up on a separate post.
    Thanks!!

    the white will probably be white

    the other 2 could be partridge, red, buff

    the light one will for sure be white, the tan one with the two spots on its head looks like i will be a "buff splash" (a buff base with some dark brown spots) i have one and it looked just like that as a chick, and the darkest one looks like it will be like a dark partridge
