    I love it. But it makes me think of a clown instead of fruit loops. [​IMG]

    I have this little silkie. She looked like a partridge with a solid cream head when hatched. Now she is white with a black tail. I have several more coming along that are just now turning from partridge to white. I thought this came from my partridge pen but it might have come from my b/b/s pen. I have so many hatch each day that I'm not sure!

    Any thoughts on the genetics of these?

    I think the color is beautiful but not sure if it's just a "mistake" or if it could be something.

    I also am getting grays from somewhere, pretty sure the b/b/s coop.

    Could the first one also be a gray even though she mostly white and doesn't look at all like the bottom one? Someone suggested it might be a gray.

    Thanks for your help! Trying to figure out what to do with these babies!
