    i'd say buff. By the way, we used your coop photos to model our construction from. We renovated a one room log cabin, made a chicken area and a human area, ours looks quite similar to yours. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

    that stripe on the eye confuses me; partrige silkies are colored like little chipmunks with that eye stripe for down and buff silkies are colored yellow for down so,,,,what color was tha down?

    I am going to guess the one might be half partridge/half buff with the buff being the color of the feathers (have to wait for final feathers till older) and the other one a partridge

    Thank You all! I am so happy I have buff and partridge all I can usually find in my neck of the woods is blacks or whites! I do have 2 blacks and two whites in this batch as well and I think a couple of partridge!
    Thanks again
