    The top three look like Partridge silkies.
    The other one looks like a blue silkie.

    Fantastic! I've never had a partridge until now, and I only expected B/B/S and white from this hatch. I was surprised when I saw those little guys/gals! I also didn't realize a blue could have that much light fuzz like that on it...amazing!

    I purchased the eggs from a fellow BYCer, and she marked all of them as to what they should hatch. She used the following abbreviations: SPL, BL, B, W, WA. I'm still not sure what the WA is supposed to represent, but when I purchased them it said they would be B/B/S and white.
