    I got them from my local hardware store. They had about five different breeds all together in a tub. The employees didn't know what they were or even what had been ordered. One employee guessed they were Americaunas, but I don't think so with the feathered legs.

    I just googled partridge silkie and found almost identical pictures of chicks. Thank you! I was hoping for blue egglayers when i got them thinking they were americaunas, but i just read through the breed description and silkies sound great too! I'm excited to see them grow, they look beautiful.
