    I don't know if silkies are hatched dark or if they are hatched light and then darken later but that is another guess we'll have to wait until it is feathered in better.

    Where did you get it at? Does it have white skin? If so, it may be a Splash Marans. If it has yellow skin, it is probably a Splash Cochin. :)

    Cackle doesn't carry Splash Marans, so your chick is a Splash Cochin.
