    This little cutie just hatched last night. I think it should be white but doesn't seem to be. The dad was a white Silky mom was either white or partridge. Will it turn whiter as it gets older???


    Thanks in advance

    My little one is that color and the mom and dad were both white. It turned whiter when it grew up. But if your momis a partridge it midt look like its dirty white.

    Hard to say unless you know the history of your adults.

    What color thier parents were?

    Should be White BUT looks kinda buff.

    THEY ARE BOTH CUTE :)
