    I ordered 10white silkies from Ideal Poultry and recieved my order today. I am not a chicken expert so am I wrong with my thinking that they should be yellow/cream/buff? I recieved lavender, blue/black and what I call chipmunk colored. Will they turn white?

    LOL!!! Did you mark that you would accept substitutes??? Or are you sure you didn't choose an assortment??? I could see a white starting off lavenderish, but not blue/black and chipmunk...

    ETA: Are they all silkies??

    You can try calling them and ask them about the chicks that you have received as they can ship you a replacement order of the chicks you want.

    I told them no substitutes. I put my order in 6 weeks ago and had to wait so that I could get all white. Glad to know that I know a little about chicks.Thanks
