    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us - nice photo! I'm sure that there is a silkie thread - just type "silkie thread" in the search box and hopefully you should find the thread where you can post amongst the experts.

    Best wishes

    I don't know what the gray one would be called. There are several dedicated silkie threads, "Paint silkies," "Buff silkies," "Nothing but Partridge, silkies" and my favorite which is simply "Silkie thread," put that in the search box and it will pop up. You have some beautiful birds.

    I would say the gray one would be considered a blue Silkie, but I can't be 100% sure.

    All of your birds are beautiful ... and looks like they have a very nice yard to free range in. [​IMG]
