    I think I know the colours, but am very new to Silkies and would love the opinion of someone more experienced. Oh and if you want to suggest names, I would love that too as these three are still without. They were born at the beginning of July/11. The pictures of Silkie #3 will not load, but I know she(I hope) is a smutty(almost clear) buff. The fathers were Buff and the moms were white.

    The second one looks similar to Partridge.

    I was begining to think that #2 might be one too. This is the first time I've seen one so light though. Anybody have any clue on quality?

    to me - I might be wrong - I think #1 has the head for a good quality Partridge but not the body (should be darker)
    and #2 has the body for a good quality partridge but not the head... But like I said I could very well be wrong..

    Both partridge. I think the 1st one is partridge because of it's crest but the body looks like a buff silkie.
