    Hi all, I could not believe my eyes when I saw a bin with Silkie chicks in it in Buchheits. I could not pass up the chance to get Silkie chickens, so I bought 6!!! They were not sexed so I may have some roosters but I am ok with that. The problem is that I am not sure what colors I have; the tag just said assorted colors. So if anyone knows for sure what colors my 6 are could you please tell me? Oh and I have not named them yet so any name ideas would be nice.
    I am not sure what color this one is

    I think some of these are Blue and maybe a black one

    I don't know what the light one is

    Thanks for any help

    Oh My Goodness, I cant believe you just found a bucket of them! We have been trying to get a silkie, but by the time we were ready to order them they were all sold out!!!!!
    Ok, well here's some answers... It looks like you have black, buff, and the rest I am uncertain!!! Go to mypetchicken.com, go under day old chicks, and look go through the pages looking at all of the types!!!
    Good luck with your fluff balls and I hope you turn out to have beautiful colors [I am sure you will]!!!!

    I suggest you name the Biblical names so you will never run out of names.

    Some suggestions are:

    Thahash
    Nahor
    Gath
    Haahashtari
    Lakum
    Leummim
    Methusael
    Arphaxahad
    Mizraim
    Havilah

    My wife only lets me name the fish...

    I had a silkie roo named Mr. Puffy Pants, my 4 year old daughter named him. She would carry him around like a little baby, wrapped in a blankie and everything. Your chicks are darling [​IMG]
