    I got this lil guy yesterday, its a silkie rooster and its estimated to be around a year old or maybe even older. My wife brought him home yesterday with a white hen and hes a cute lil guy and has not stopped crowing and showing off since I got him in his new pen lol. I just wondered what color pattern he is? From the pics he looks kinda like a black based splash?

    He has ALOT of gray or white spots, his rump and belly look almost gray with more black spotting, he's a confusing little guy. Apparently the people my wife got them from had just had 9 chicks of his and the white hen I got, they were white, gray, black, and some that looked just like him lol.

    Well I guess it will never matter, my wife failed to tell me that she couldn't get the coop locked last night, the male and female were both killed by a raccoon, we had them 8 hours
