So I went and picked up a few more birds and this girl has me confused. She has the markings similar to an Italian Gold but she isn't gold, she's white and a very pale grey colour (much lighter in real life than in the picture). What colour would you call her? I should mention that she is so light its almost an off white colour.

This second photo is just cause I love her! She too is much lighter in colour than in the photo.

Thanks! So that's what a silver looks like, cool! The fellow I bought them off was having problems hatching out his silvers so I was only able to get those 2 and both are females. He said to get the bleu he breeds them to a wildtype. But what would you breed the silver pied to to get more like her?

From you help last time I thought the second one was a bleu but its good to have confirmation.

The silver color is extremely lethal. The hens only show the color, the males will be white in color. I will get into this in the morn as I am drifting off to sleep
