    These guys are two weeks old tonight. They looked buff when I got them but I always wondered if the spots on their heads will stay and now the new fluff coming through looks like maybe they'll be grey...does anyone have any thoughts?

    Then this photo is a photo of when I first got them at a day old!

    They may be "partidge" color.

    Thanks! I didn't even know that colour existed! Cute! (After goggle imaging) I guess it would have been a mix if a grey and a buff (the lady I got them off only had grey, white and buff)!

    looks like a buff over grey, maybe? in the top photo it looks like they have some buff coming out.
