    All of her siblings are Blue, Black & Splash... with a White here & there [​IMG]
    She is Mainly Blue but has some Gold coloring around her neck, almost Partridge-like?

    So What Color is She?

    Looks to me like you've got some gold leakage in your BBS parents. . .

    That, or white Silkies are a recessive white, and so that makes the white parents having something else leaking in, too.

    The whites are Recessive. It doesn't suprise me there's probably something else sneaking around in there too.

    So there's no real name for her color then? Just a very, super cute PQ girl?

    No. To me it just looks like "rusted blue" or "gold leaked blue" - A term used for blues who have another gene, often birchen or duckwing, leaking through. To breeders and showers it something that must be culled out. As a pet though, it is fine. [​IMG]

    Well thankfully she is just a pet here [​IMG] Out of the 100+ babies this year she was the only pullet to color in with the gold...and shes the fluffiest, lol.
