    Wish I had better pics but they just wont be still. One is very black , its name is Cookie and that is also black but not as dark is Cookie and my favorite is a gray color and its name is Kiwi [​IMG] Im so in love with them. Never had a silkie before just knew to look for black skin and 5 toes-lol.I would love a white one also.I dont know when Ill be able to tell what sex they are but heres a photo of my 6 weeks old silkies.
    They are the 3 in back and my strange chick in front wanted in photo.
