    I'm not familiar with this color, but my guess would be partridge.

    Quote:Why does your Silkie not his face covered up? I've looked up "non-bearded" and it doesn't seem to be about the face feathers, although I can't figure what the difference is. Do you shave your Silkie's face?? Was he born like that?

    I love my Silkie's eyes and he's tolerant of my brushing it out of his way so I can see them, but I'm pretty sure he'd never sit still for that kind of grooming. YIKES!
