    i have splash silkie chicks about 2 months old and they dont have spots, they just look white. i do have white silkies but they looked splash when they was first born so i dont think i mixed the eggs. has anyone had this problem? can you show me pics of splash chicks?

    Here is a splash and a white at around 2 months old:

    The splash's spots have gotten darker since then. Also I've heard that if you breed splash to splash the offspring will be "faded".

    Yes, now I just have to paint him green. He has a cute face. He is the only splash I have so far. I'm hatching more silkie eggs now, and I sure hope I have more splashes. They are darn pretty to look at.
