    Hello, I am new to BackYard Chickens and just adopted 4 silkie chicks yesterday! I know that I have a black, grey, and buff color but one chick I am not so sure about. The chick's body color is white and it has some light yellow on it's head, but what confuses me is the two greyish lines on it's back and a greyish dot on the back of it's head. So I was hoping if someone could identify the color of the chick and for some pics of what it might look like in the future.
    Here is a picture of the chick IMG_20180614_192413.jpg IMG_20180614_192256.jpg

    Could you take pics of the chick under sunlight? My guess is splash or porcelain.

    Yeah same as before, either splash or porcelain but most likely splash.
