    i have a pale yellow silkie who i is 9 days old and i believe she's gonna be a white silkie. HOWEVER, i have one month old white EE girl with WHITE feathers. and when i compare my silkie to Audrey (my EE)......then my silkie looks like her feathers are also a pale yellow....like her chick fuzz. even if i DON'T compare her to audrey, i can tell the feathers have a buttery hue. she's not a buff silkie either. will she still be white? or will she be some other color?

    She will be white. My Silkie was yellow until her "big girl" feathers came in. Now, she is a snowy white.
