Any guess on what color Solo the Silkie is? Happy Update :)

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Solsken Farm, Sep 8, 2008.

  1. Here is poor little Solo, the only chick to hatch out of 22 eggs. Would she be a splash? or a blue? or a gray? Her beak is not mulberry but black. How the heck does one sex a silkie anyway? I will probably get laughed at for asking if anyone can tell this little ones gender. Poor little lonely thing. I had to leave for work today. Her first day with no one to hold her and keep her company.[​IMG]

    Oops forgot the pic.

    Very pretty [​IMG] I would say definitely not gray, gray has the chipmunk markings. Hard to say but I am leaning towards a light blue. [​IMG] nice foot feathering [​IMG]

    Quote:OUr grays don't have the chipmunk markings on them when they hatch. They look silver when they are young. They are a little darker then this one.

    That chick looks like my splash did as baby chicks. Very cute [​IMG]
     

  5. I would say Splash.
     
  6. Oh goody! Any color would be good, but Splash would be super! [​IMG] Sweet thing...we all love her.

    She is very cute.

    Don't know what color he/she will be, but you might put a small stuffed animal in there to keep the poor chick company! Very cute.

    Many of the eggs were marked Splash. I had such a nice assortment and was so excited. Mostly splash, blue and some partridge and white. There were 7 with ? marks. This was one of them. [​IMG]

    Jenski. SHe has a towel and a stuffed walrus. It was the smallest one of my kids I could find and steal. Poor thing. I fell asleep with her on me on the couch last night. Luckily I woke up before I squished her, the cat got her, or she fell and got "played with to death" by my cocker who thinks she is a squeak toy. [​IMG]

    Thanks folks.

    I think its a splash too. My blue are more of a smokey color when they are born. I had to hatch just like it-and they where splash.[​IMG]
