    I set 4 eggs and got 4 new chicks! [​IMG]
    Mom is black, and Dad is either "Columbo", my colombian grey roo, or "Razz", my white roo. [​IMG]
    From the looks of these chicks, I think Columbo is getting most of the action. [​IMG]

    They look like 3 blues and a black to me.

    Quote:Here's Columbo. He comes from a Colombian roo and a Grey hen. Since no one has been able to tell me his definite color, I'm just calling him Colombian Grey. [​IMG]

    He's gorgeous, but definitely a mixed color. Unless he is a grey that has a rampid amount of silver. Needless to say the chicks are very good looking and have very nice vaults. You should definitely get some fluff from them.

    Quote:Thanks Poulets. This is my first set of chicks from my Silkies. I'm not into showing and all that jazz, but I do like good quality birds.
