    She looks like a gray hen to me.
     
  4. It's been awhile since I've raised Silkies (just got four of 'em at our last swap) but I think I've heard that color pattern described as "blue birchen." Birchen coloring is black but for a silvery head and chest (not the best description here), and your silky looks kind of like that, only blue instead of black. Just a thought. She is gorgeous, whatever the color!
