    Hi I'm new to this forum I have now 7 young chickens. Three white silkies, whom I am hoping are female and I can keep them. One Delaware white pullet, and three Rhodebar pullets. Strangest thing though, one of the Rhodebar eyes have turned blue. Hope to learn a lot on here and meet new people. Sorry it's short, just trying to stay simple!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Sound like you have some lovely birds there! You could post some pics of your silkies in the what breed gender section ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
    I'm sure members there will be able to help you out. As for your blue eye I'm not sure. Try the search bar above for a thread on rhodebar.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow
