    What color is this silkie and do you think she'll change much as she gets older?
    This is Dizzie at 2 weeks.

    I think that's a gray silkie, but I don't have that color, so I'm not positive. She's a cutie!

    LilPeeps- I met Joni and Mike, owners of Destiny Farms in Brighton, MI when I was ready to purchase chickens. Joni breeds and hatches lots of different layers and dual purpose birds. She also has Silkies, white and black. I mentioned in passing, I might like a couple of Silkies because they seem so sweet...she called me out of the blue one day saying she had an unusually colored chick just hatch (different than other black and white chicks) and would I be interested in taking it? We keep in touch and she was curious to see what it would look like. She has birds with and without beards.

    Thanks everyone for your answers and nice comments. I'm really glad I got my other chickens first or I would be OVERUN with Silkies![​IMG]
