    [​IMG] They all look almost the same to me! Can anyone help me deside what is what? They are three weeks old If that helps.

    They all are from Ideal. I ordered 5 reds but not sure if I got any left. I tried to group them in what I thought looked alike. But the Far left bird on the bottom pic is a bit diffrant than all off them. Any help apprichated!

    They are all partridge, def. not splash. Could possibly be buff.

    I was just hoping they weren't all Partridge [​IMG] I Think the funny one might be a buff too. But other than that the reds and buffs don't have brown markings at all I take it...

    Quote:They are too dark to be buff, and buff shouldnt have that black barring on the wings, but they are hatchery silkies, so its possible.

    light partridge or dirty buffs (with blacks on tail and wings feathers).
