    I will be ordering 5 silkie chicks from Ideal Poultry on Wednesday or Thursday. At first I wanted to get 3 blue chicks and 2 white chicks. When they get older I want to breed them so should I get all one color or mixed? Thanks :)

    It all depends upon what you want to have in your flock. Silkies from any hatchery will not be of show quality so it really does not matter what colors you breed together - just enjoy them.
