I just hatched these two Silkies. They were a bit of an accident, but I’m not going to complain about having more cute little chickens running around! I have no idea who their mother is but I do know their father is a paint Silkie. I have four Silkie hens all a different color. I have one buff, 1 splash, 1 white, and 1 partridge. Any idea what color these two chicks are and who their mother is?

One appears to be a blue and one a partridge. Since, unless they're from show lines way back, the Silkies can hold other colors in their genotype, I can't accurately decide who their mothers are.

But if I had to guess I'd say the Splash and the Partridge.
I had another hatch and this one is a light grey. Is it just going to be white or is it lavender or something like that? I gave a comparison to a white one so you can see the difference.
