    SO I am wondering.... If I have a nice lighter blue bird could I breed that with a gray? What would be the outcome?

    [​IMG] Here is one of the first ever babies of my silkies. She/he is 7 weeks old here. The crest seems female to me, what do you think? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks SilverSilkie I was hoping youd chime in your the best ! So are you saying he is Partridge and NOT Cuckoo ? Or was one of his parents partridge? His chicks have all been partridges and whites . And he does have faint blue ear lobes but one side shows more then the other.

    Why thank you! :D

    I thought she was stinking adorable, and she was hatched by someone I donated eggs to (a daycare hatching experiment).

    Now I have 18 of my own little fuzzy babies. None are old enough to look this cute though :p
