    The only thing I am confused about with #3 and #4 is one has a dark beak and legs and the other is light beak and legs. I don't know if silkys can have different colored beak and legs and still be the same breed

    I am starting to see small waddles and cones on 2 of them, so I think I might have 2 roos, I am far from experienced so I will wait a few more weeks to know for sure
