    They are a buff color with splash undertone and the hard feathers are tiger striped. In the top picture you can see more of the striping.
    I am new to this and i am still unsure hehe but they are very pretty I think

    They look like blue partridge to me.


    I am new to Silkies and could be wrong though.

    The one in the last picture Im pretty sure it is a blue partridge but Im not sure of the first ones the one in the back of that picture doesnt have true partridge markings in the wings, Im not sure on them! The lighting plays apart on not being able to tell could yo get a picture of them outside in natural light! the flash sometimes makes them look alot lighter then they are!

    Quote:The outside picture is actually what they look like but I will take all three out and take a picture and see what you think. I will try to get a few different shots of the back, sides etc.
    The silkie in the back is about a week younger then the other two. What do the markings look like? I am learning lol

    Quote:Wing markings on partridge chicks change as they mature; those are pretty typical for youngsters.
