    Your roo appears to be blue partridge which is a very popular color though it is not yet recognized. Your hens may be dark blue partridge but the photo is too small to tell if they have any pencilling.

    Isabel when graypearl/cream and no white/Silver

    In the EU are also wrongly used names for Millefleur and Porcelain, Millefleur diluted by lavender and Isabelporcelain.

    Porcelain is now so well established for the by lavender diluted Buff/blacktails and/or gold Partridges (even it is genetically wrong) that in my opinion it better stay that way in the US.

    But that is up to you US Silkie breeders to decide ;-)
