    Is this a lavender silkie?

    Hello! Can anyone share their thoughts on this little silkie chick? Do you think it will be lavender or too early to tell? I don’t know what either parent looked like unfortunately. It really doesn’t matter, it will be loved either way! Just curious :) Thank you!
