I will bore you with some background in the next post, but I have a couple of Silkie Chicks like I haven't seen before among our plain Black and White flocks. This Silkie Chick is the offspring of a Rooster that is White, and one of four hens - 3 white and 1 black. Here it is pictured beside one of its "gray" siblings. All of it's siblings are varying degrees of yellow or gray. When this chick was born, it was the most yellow of all except for those two black dots on its head. Here he is "Day One" I was looking for a day old picture of the other one, but couldn't find handy. He was the "first of the litter" and was all yellow except for faint "chipmunk" markings on his back. They're just a shadow really, and have started to fade as it grows, but I've not seen one like it except Partridge Silkies, in which the markings are fully colored across the back. Out of 8 chicks hatched, every one has a slightly different coloration. From just yellow to yellow with gray to just gray to black and yellow to these two. Any ideas what will become of particularly this one pictured? Anyone seen this in their Silkies?
