    This is my 11 week old silkie cockerel, his name is Peep and I have no idea what color he is. (maybe partridge???) Can you help? I was hoping to show him, does anybody think he would be a good show roo?
    Thanks in advance!!! (sry, he's a little dirty)

    I think they call that blue partridge, but I'm not sure. I'm also not sure if partridge is a recognized show color, yet? I can't remember.

    Hard to tell by that picture if he'd be good for showing or not. He would have to grow a lot more crest, for one. Also depends on his skin color, toes, toe seperation, leg and foot feathering, etc. He definitely has more growing and filling in to do.

    Enjoy him! [​IMG]

    He's a partridge, which is a recognized color. He looks to be PQ, but he's still got some filling out to do.
