    So i ordered some eggs from a person on here and the egg was labeled buff but the coloring of the chick is worrying me. What do you all think.

    It looks like it may be a Porcelain color. I bought a Porcelain hen in early December, she is absolutely gorgeous.

    I also hatched some Silkie chicks about 2 weeks ago, and I am still worried about 4 of the chicks being yellow. I thought I was getting blue, splash, and white. I am really hoping that they are not buff. I would love to have a splash roo that I can breed back to my SQ Porcelain hen.

    looks like it will either be a very pale buff or white. - doesn't look like a porcelain, from my understanding usually porcelains have a peach/lavender coloration as chicks

    depending on the genes of the parents you may have a porcelian
