    I have a black silkie roo over a black silkie hen. My columbian Rock went broody so I gave the eggs to her. Now she's the mom of 7 fluffy bums. I sold the 7 chicks prior because I have enough silkies. Just wondering about the light colored chicks. What color/kind are they? They have the markings of a partidge but not the color! [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure its a partridge, just that the chick isn't old enough and the colors will change.

    I do think silvers are pretty good lookin. I prefer partridge personally, though [​IMG]

    Yea.... That sometimes happens to me too but I just tell myself that if I don't then the chicks will die because nobody will feed them.

    I think I'm going to leave mama hen with a couple and sell the rest. I don't have the heart to sell all her babies right now

    She looks like she could be a silver partridge. It's the best of both worlds!!!
