    What colour silkies are these?

    Some of them do have a greenish tinge to the feet. Some are black.... I will take a closer picture of the feet and post... does that mean they are crossed with something else??? Supposedly they only have silkies... but maybe one of their silkies is something else too.

    What colour silkies are these?

    yeah they definitely have a chipmunk pattern but they don't have the brown colouring that those chicks do. They are more grey than brown. I guess I will have to wait and see!
