    Hi
    I am new to everything with the silkies and I am trying to load a few pic's of these 3 that I am not shure on what there called ( color ) 1 hen & 2 Roos.. They are 8 months old and I hatched them out of a SQ out of FL My question is are they Buff or Partridge or some of each?

    The 2 roosters look like very poor colored buffs. The hens not that bad, if you intersted in the buffs, try and find a nice rooster to pair her up with. You might get some nice offspring.

    So she is a buff but the roos are not so good buffs, I kinda knew she was a buff But someone told me ( not on here ) the roos were partridge.. I just want to know what to call them & with being out numbers with roo's I may need to get rid of one of them.... Thank You for your input

    I think the roos look like buff partridge mix. The girl looks pretty good but looks like she has a lot of black in her tail and I hear
    that is really hard to breed out?????
    Pretty silkies!!

    They are all buffs, the two roos just have alot of black "smut" in their feathers. The buff hen doesn't look too bad color wise, except for the black in her tail. Pretty birds [​IMG]
