    Remember my blue silkie cross rescue last year. I got 2 roosters from a sanctuary. After a year I still can not figure out what they are crossed with.
    New and alot healthier rooster pictures.

    Look like grey silkies to me. I bred that colour for a while on the side, they were a by product of my partridge project.

    I agree, grey silkies, some call them silver or silver partridge.

    Do you mean Body wise? Cause all my silkies looked like that(sometimes even worse). Not all silkies are the poofy unidentifable show puffballs.​

    They're either dark grey, or black with silver, depends on parents (my guess would be black). They are definately pure silkies, albeit they are PQ. Very pretty boys!

    Quote:Well I guess it was my turn to learn something new today. Every Silkie I ever seen before looked like Q-tips. I guess I will go take my boys some kind of treat for insulting them. [​IMG]
