    Hi! I tried this on the silkie thread too, got no response so maybe I didnt put it in the right place? So I will try here!
    Here are my two silkies!
    They were bought as blue silkies, straight run.
    I think the one on the left is a cockerel, the one on the right a hen?
    The one of the left has some funky coloration too, not sure what color he is? I havent been able to find any pictures of a silkie that look like that, the closest thing I found was partridge?
    They are sweeties, and my kids have fallen in love:love They love to snuggle in the kids laps, or anywhere it seems!

    Your pics are a little bit small to see well. It looks like you may have a boy and a girl that are possibly blues. What appears to be a boy has gold leaking through in his hackles. While he would be a show bird, he is a lovely pet for sure!

    Need a good close up of their heads, side view if possible.

    Sorry, I tried to resize the picture but they always come out the same size:he
    Thank you for trying anyway! I really appreciate the input:) The suspected cockerel was chest bumping with my Marans Cockerel it was pretty cute, pretty sure he's a he anyway.
    It was the color that really made me wonder.
    So that is what that gold color is, it's leakage? I figured it was something off, when I couldn't find pics anywhere of something similar.
    Once you get over the fact that he looks like a punk rocker with a bad dye job, it is rather pretty I think.[​IMG]

    Smilies didn't work?
