    I need to post 3 silkies for you Silkie experts.

    I have two that just hatched. One must be blue (but what is gray? Does anyone call a chicken gray?) and one is very light brown, could that be a partridge? I also have Solo, the lonely silkie, who at one month will now have some pals that look like her.

    When I have a chance I will post pics for opinions. Thanks.
