    I was told one of my roosters was a red brown. Everyone told me thats not possible. So I took my chances I had time and room to breed him to some blue hen's.

    I have 10 babies I hatched that are now 6-7 weeks old 5 out of the 10 looks just like the lemon blue cochins and some are a dark blue and some are black I will take pics tomorrow of the babies.

    Is it possible that they could be lemon blue silkies?


    Just for Reference for now this is what they look similar to.


    NOT MY PICTURE.

    Mine hatched out look blue and black. They are beautiful dark blue on the back end and have the bright red breast and down on the hackles. They are beautiful!

    New pics...I am now thinking they look more like red browns but it does not show in the pics how blue they are in the back.
