    I have a black silkie about 6 months old. Beautiful bird, thought it was a hen until I heard Him crow.:/ Always to many Roosters, not enough hens. This rooster has what looks to be deep blue,purple colors on wings. The colors really show well in the sun, r these normal colors for blk. Silkies.

    Most black birds have a sheen to them, some have a green sheen, others a purple sheen.
