    Totally new to silkies. We ordered "assorted colors" and here is what we got. I took individual pictures of 4 of the 5 b/c 2 are exactly the same. The last picture is of all of them just hanging out. Thanks for any help![​IMG]

    I ordered an assortment of silkies, 5 of them, from Ideal. I'm pretty sure 4/5 are white and the other probably is but there's a teeny tiny itty bitty chance it might be a slightly darker or splash color just because it's baby fuzz is a little more yellow while the others are definately white. Bummer. I wanted an ASSORTMENT. That's why I ordered an ASSORTMENT but I've just got to settle for all white...
