Well........I got my email from Ideal telling me it is almost time to place 2009 orders. While I REALLY wanted to hatch my own Silkie and La Fleche chicks I am planning to order a few to get me started. So, on the Silkies, I think I will order the white my son wants and a few colors. They have "blue" and they have "self blue". What is the difference and any opinions on what is prettier????
