    Look like Whites to me. They could be Buff, but I'm leaning more towards white.

    Well, at first I was going to say white (from the first pic), but all of them together makes me think buff. I'm not sure, but they look very nice!

    I say white. Some white silkie chicks hatch out with a little yellow-tinge to them, but they lose it in a few weeks.

    Some of my chicks at about a week old. None of them were totally white when they hatched but are getting white feathers now.[​IMG]
