    I have a black silkie rooster and a white silkie hen, I got a silver fluffed chick from them. Is this normal? Will it keep its dove grey? I also have a blue silkie hen but Im 99% sure that the egg was not hers. But really my main questions is, as listed above, Will it keep its dove grey???? Because that would be awesome!!!

    it's possible it's hard to tell this early if chicks are like pups they darken/lighten up as they get older my doxie was a very pale strawberry blonde as a 2 week old pup and at 6mths old he was a full fledge red head just like his dad
