I was wondering what color this showgirl is. Is it pure bred? Is it still a silkie? Also if i mix silkie colors will they sell as pure bred silkies if i say they are not pure colors?

The one in the photo looks to be blue partridge. THe difference between grey and blue partridge is that in a grey, all the feathers are shades of black and white and grey. In a blue partridge, the areas that would be black are blue, but the brown/red/gold areas remain brown/red/gold.

The one that has lots of white is not a white, nor is it splash. It looks somewhat like columbian (sometimes called "light"), but without the neck lacings.

Blacks do sometimes have gold or silver show on their necks, but it is a DQ.

I have a showgirl chick that looks a lot like that first one. Mine is actually a cross between my white showgirl roo (hiding blue/black) and a mille fleur d'uccle. S/he looks like wild rabbit fur but has little white whiskers sticking out from her chin. The little bit of beard is the only way I knew it was a d'uccle cross.

I love the color and hope it's a hen.

Play around with the chicken calculator. select columbian as the colour for the whitish one, black and gold gene for the gold neck--or select birchen, then change the e-allele (for both) to e^b. Press Calculate Crossing, and see what you get.
