    This silkie chick hatched white with one black spot on its head now its changing colours. Its wings are turning a buff/brown colour. I thought it was going to be a white with a bit of spalsh on the head but its obviously not. Anyone got any ideas?

    I have had partridge chicks and they have never gone light to dark, they are already dark. Maybe this one is confused, I guess I'll have to wait and see how it turns out.

    Maybe a splash or something... I've only ever had white silkies.

    Most likely light partridge. Very pretty chick!
