    My first incubating experience. Hen and Roo both white and they're the only ones I have, but my 6 babies are like 2 different colors...3 look more buff and 3 have kind of mixed coloring with a lot of yellow feathers. The picture makes them look whiter than they actually are. But that's quite all right...they're just so adorable. And I will probably use this picture for my Christmas cards this year!

    They will probably all feather out white. The down can look different when they're born. Adorable pic!

    I think most white Silkies are born a yellowish color.
