    They came out of blue, splash and white parents so I have noo idea how we would have gotten partridges![​IMG] So Strange!

    1 definitely looks like our baby, who is 7 weeks old now, and she is turning out to be the palest blue/grey (you can only tell it's not white when she's up against our other white silkie), and she has splashes of buff. very pretty! so could be similar to that?

    3 looks white, 4 looks like it could be that really pale blue/grey.

    they are all so cute! i just love silkies!

    I'm no expert! I could be wrong.
    So maybe the first 2 are splash?

    My tan chick who feathered out white.
    #5 a really dark blue that probably came out of hen who had a parent that was black. I imagine that chick will be very dark blue with brown undertones.
    And the last ones are a nice blues. [​IMG]
    They are really cute. Are they from your flock or did you buy hatching eggs?

    Im not sure, but I want to know how #5 feathers out. I love the dark color looks to be a partridge. Im confused?!? blue/black/splash parent stock. Maybe the black parent has some partrige in there background. [​IMG]

    5 looks black to me. I have black chicks that look like that... mine aren't show quality birds though so that may be the reason. I think the first 4 are white too and the last three are blues or splashes, leaning towards two light blues and one dark blule. What's that on #4's head? A big vaulted skull?!?!?

    Yup! We had two or three vaulted skulls! #4 has one, and I think another one of the whites has one but I can't remember for sure and I can't tell from the pictures which it is, and I know one of the dark ones has a vaulted skull too... Hard to tell unless you see them in person. They are sooo cute, I had to drive back up to Alyssa's yesterday to take pictures of them fluffed up for all you lovely people XD bow down to my photographic skills!
