    This silkie hatched yesterday. Its parent possibilities were white, blue or black roosters over a white, blue, splash or black hen. There was a buff roo in the pen, as well, but she said it was removed quite a long time ago.

    Blue black and splash can be interbred, if it were pure blue black or splash it wouldn't look like that. This leads me to believe that one of its parents are white, which is why you have the patterning. At this points, its a mixed color, and there isn't any telling how its going to feather out.
