    I've Never Had Silkie Chicks Before, Bought Myself Two Blues And Lavenders But The Blues Are Coming Through With White, Is This Correct Or Not?[​IMG]

    Those are Cuckoo, definitely not Blue.

    I Thought It Looked Cuckoo, Some One Told Me They Could Be Juvenile And It Moults Out Or They Won't Be A Solid Blue But You Can't Tell Till Their 16 Weeks.

    I breed Cuckoo Silkies. Sometimes Blues will have weird coloring that does molt out, but these are definitely Cuckoo.
