    I don't know what variety/color she is. She has a little gold, and maybe blue?

    I'm not a Silkie person, so hopefully someone else with more Silkie-sense than me will come and agree or disagree with my guess. [​IMG]

    Perhaps Partridge? At least, that's the closest pure color it looks like. [​IMG]

    Nice looking Calico (three distinct colors with no particular pattern) cockerel. Partridge requires a pattern to the feathers. He does not have that. I would say he is the result of crossing Splash and Buff.
