    I hatch b/b/s silkies. I just hatched this guy. Is it a silver partridge & where did it come from? Last time I got some partridges from shipped eggs (were SUPPOSED to be b/b/s) they were brown. This is silver. Very pretty. I assume I can't breed it with my b/b/s? Is it a recognized color? Never remember seeing any at a show.
    Not sure how to post pics so I hope this works! Thanx!

    It looks like a partridge. It is probably out of the blacks used in the breeding. I have found that it is not uncommon to have blacks to pop up in partridge breeding pens and partridge to pop up in black breeding pens.
