    We bought some hatching eggs and were told that they were Gold Tops (Silkie/Light Sussex cross) and that they were sex-linked (i.e. that the white ones would be boys and the buff ones would be girls). Here are 4 of the 5 that have hatched - we have 1 white (pale yellow) and 4 buff in total (no picture of one of them). Can anyone confirm if what we've been told is correct please? The chicks were only 3 days old when this photo was taken, earlier this week.

    Many thanks, in hopeful anticipation!

    Hello. Do you happen to know the color of the silkie? It might be true if the silkie is a certain color.

    Unfortunately we don't know what colour the silkie was. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how these turn out - I'll wait until they're a little bigger and then post some more pictures on here.

    Many thanks anyway.
