    I'm really curious as to what my Twinkle's real color is. I got her as a wee chick and all I know of her background is she came from someone's
    "Project Pen". They didn't seem to care to share what "project", which would have made it easier to figure out what color she is. But I think she's
    beautiful. I'll post a couple of pics and incase her color's aren't quit as visible...she is dark grey, light grey, with a beige to creamy color base, and dark grey and cream sort of striping to the tips of her wings.

    Ok so here are pic's...Twinkle

    I was thinking grey hmmmm, could be from Partridge pen or whatever. Thank for taking a look.

    She is a grey. Grey and silver partridge are the same thing, grey is the recognized name for the variety.

    She is the product of mixing colors. She is from one Gray parent, but the other parent was probably White or Splash. She is lovely. I have 5 or 6 much like her.
