    my first silkie chick hatched about 4 hours ago... she looks to be black with some blonde in it. Can anyone tell me what color she is? Partridge?
    I know her skin is black but it appears that she has some black hair too.

    I think you will have to wait until it feathers out completely at about 5 months. It's adorable.

    My guess is brown. My silkie was born with white feathers except one feathers was brown and black. After her first molting it grew back white.
