    Hey, is this little baby of mine a light blue or splash? I got four BBS silkies from McMurray (one didn't make it) and one is a showing black, one's blue, and this little feller has got me a bit confused. I was going with light blue as a chick (pale greyish color as a hatchling) but now as it's growing it's coming out a bit different, so I'd like to know y'alls' opinions. [​IMG]

    Thanks [​IMG] I'm sort of leaning towards blue also, but I just can't be sure. [​IMG]

    My Splash weren't yellow as chicks, in fact, none of them were. [​IMG] I would say light blue, though.

    I am going to buck the trend and say splash, though a better pic is needed to tell for sure. If it were blue, it would be much darker.
