    I just hatched out three very pale gray silkies. The breeder that sold me the eggs said that a few of her hens carry the lavender gene and suspects that a couple of her roos do as well. Are these lavender silkies?[​IMG]

    What colour were the parents? They could be lavender, splash or white. Knowing the parents' colours would help narrow down the possibilities.

    OMG yes they are beautiful! I forgot to add that, I was so busy thinking how you could tell the color.
    They ARE beautiful, no matter what color
