    I was sold this chick as "Silkie - Assorted" at my local feed store, which is suuuper helpful. I've never kept a silkie before; any guess on what color she'll be?

    She is only about a week old.

    That unfortunately is actually a polish. I believe it's a white crested black.

    Silly me for trusting the feed store to know. Thank you so much!
