    So i am kinda wondering what color these chicks would be i have two of them. The hen was a black silkie and the roo was a white frizzled cochin. I believe one of the parents of the hen where partridge since she has a few brown spots on her wing feathers. Thanks. =)[​IMG]

    Silkie white genes are recessive, so none of them will be white. If the mother wasn't a true black, and had partridge in there, your chicks will be variations of partridge and dark colors.

    They're adorable. It'd be nice if you could post pics once they mostly feathered out. It'll be interesting to see how they develop!
