    So my silkies are 6 weeks old. There were 4, but the two partridge I had had significant combs by 4-6 weeks so these two are left. Before full feathers are coming in, they were both considered blue in my brain. One of them is getting light and dark differentiations and I am thinking it is a dark colored splash. (top one)
    What do you think. And I know it is early for sex but any thoughts help[​IMG][​IMG]

    Colour would be called blue - and it's far too early to tell. Once they are full feathered, you may get a better idea, but even still it can be tricky.
