    I can't figure out which color of Silkie I like best. I will be getting a pullet from McMurray in a few weeks (primarily for a pet) and am trying to decide whether to get a Blue, Black, Buff, or White Silkie. They are all equally amazing and I can't make up my mind! Help meh please. Thanks [​IMG]

    Why don't you get two? Then it can have a companion. If I were you, I would get one buff and one black, but that's just me.

    I like the Buff's color, but I also like the iridescent shine of the black...and the contrast of the white...and the 'differentness' of the blue
    [​IMG] This is driving me nuts!

    If you order a Blue, are you actually going to get a Blue, or any one of Blue, Black, Splash?

    I think white silkies look the most elegant out of all the silkie colours, I do like mixed colours such as splash but for a silkie it has to be white for me.
