    Any help will be appreciated...
    Cinnabar is a week old now and I'm still unsure if it is a Red Silkie or a Buff Silkie.
    Can our Silkie Experts help with this 1???

    It is a sweet and fun chick no matter which she is, I'm just wondering...
    It's little wing feathers have a little cream color to them.

    Thank you,

    I'm gonna say red. I got a red, buff, and partridge at the end of August and the buff had no black on it. The red and partridge did and I thought I knew which was which but as they feathered out turned out I had them backwards.

    Thank you mom2jedi It is so cute, I can't wait til it gets bigger.
    I hold it every day so it gets use to my touch. [​IMG]
    It's color just confuses me [​IMG] , 1 day it looks a red color and the next it looks a cream color.
    I will post pics each week as it grows... [​IMG] to [​IMG] in no time... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Her little pin feathers appear to have some black on them. Don't be suprised if you end up with a partridge or something! Another few weeks will give a better idea of his/her color.
