This was my feeling too - I just wanted silkies and didn't really care what color. I've come full circle from not wanting "froo-froo" chickens, to being absolutely besotted with my silkies (from Renee). It all started with my lack of broody hens, despite having some broody breeds. The only hen I've ever had go broody was a BSL - go figure. Anyway, I decided to get either Cochins or Silkies or both, so that I too could have some living incubators, and Renee very kindly helped me out with a black and a blue (or is it splash? I'm not that good on colors). Anyway, they are so adorable. They are very docile and friendly and don't mind being picked up at all. And they make the cutest little sounds! When I go to see them they actually run over to me and have got so used to being picked up to be carried in and out morning and night that they know the routine now. I pick up the black and tuck her under my right arm, and the blue comes over to stand by my left leg, knowing I'm going to pick her up next and tuck her under my left arm. Sometimes while I'm carrying them in, the blue one will tuck her head into my shirt and murmur quietly to me as we go. I call them both "her" because that is Renee's best guess. I'm keeping in mind how notoriously difficult silkies are to sex and one or both could wind up crowing instead of incubating.
