I've been wanting Lav silkies for a while. But I couldn't seem to get a hold of any around here. I hatched several batches of B/B/S eggs with the Lav gene mixed in. And after thinking a few of the splashes were lav and being disappointed when they weren't I just gave up on the idea of hatching Lavs. Well today when I was moving my newest silkie hatch outside to the bigger brooder. I realized one of the chicks were off color. I had assumed the chick was a splash from the beginning. Even though it was more of a sky blue and yellow color. Upon furture inspection It was for sure not a splash. Nor does it even look close to the blues. I couldn't believe it. Was it possibly I got lucky and got a Lav chick after all, and didn't even notice. Now I am even more worried about moving the chicks out tonight. I hate moving babies out. But knowing that there may be a lavender baby I'm really anxious. lol. They should be fine. It's staying in the 80's and I just checked them. But still. Here is the baby in question. I looked at feather shafts the tops are white. But the bottoms do look dark. : But I am no expert. Here it is with a blue on the left, a white in the middle.
