    This guy is a light blue, right? I'm pretty sure this guy is one I hatched from eggs I got from Marjorie Best.

    My guess is he's a washed out splash or a lavender, he really doesn't look blue to me at all. Not andalusian blue that is.

    I'm not a silkie color expert, but I would guess that that's a lavender silkie.

    can you get a picture of the feather shafts? This would be the most help, if we were to see pic's of the feather shafts.

    I will try to get some pictures of the feather shafts later.

    What would they look like if they were a lavender?
