    well I ended up losing the silkie chick whose coloring I really liked. It was a mix match group, so I was wondering... what color was he? That way next time I get silkies I can get that color.

    This wasn't the bird just a pic I got from the internet...

    but the one to the far right.....


    Ok did my own research figured out it's most likely a partridge colored... but chicks looks differ... does it effect they way the look as adults?

    it almost looks gray to me
    gray looks like partridge, just more black/white instead of brown and they are chipmunk striped. My computer died so I can't post a pic of mine, they aren't on this puter [​IMG]

    I saw that partridge chicks looks differ... does this have any barring on what they will look likle as an adult. I saw one on here not to long back that was amazing looking....


    .... but I guess everyone hopes for a good looking bird
