    Here are a few pictures of my day old bantams, a black silkie, red silkie, & what is supposed to be a blue cochin. About 80% of the other blue cochins in the brooder were much darker, and I was wondering if this one should turn out blue or if there is a chance it might be a splash? Also, are either of the silkies bearded? I think that the black is but I'm not too sure about the red...these are my first silkies! They're all so cute! [​IMG]

    The silkies are bearded and the cochin is a splash. The "red" silkie is actually a buff.

    Yay, thank you for the fast reply! I thought the silkie might be a buff, but since they had them labeled as red I wasn't too sure.
