I have tried very unsuccessfully to get a good pic of my silkie babies to try to show you what I'm going to try to explain further down the page: I have 4 white ones, 1 buff and 1 blue. But, one of my white silkies is very plainly pure white, while the other 3 white ones have a slightly "yellow-chick-going-to-be-white-when-they-feather-out" color. They look white with just the 3 of them together, but you put the pure paper-white one next to them and they look yellower than the super white one. I don't know what to make of this, are my three "white" ones maybe mixed perhaps with a buff, so they are going to be light buff and not true whites? Or does my "pure" white one just have a base color of white too? (I've only briefly read about "base colors" in silkies and have no real grasp on the full concept of this so I understand I could be completely mis-guided on this thought process) thanks for any replies and I'm sorry I couldn't get a good pic to help you out!
