    Any idea what color these two are? They have the black skin, the vaulted head, the feathered legs, and the 5 toes so I'd assume they're silkie but I've never seen any colored like this before. The 4 are kind of the usual off white color of white silkie but 2 are red with a wide white band down the back and on top of the head with slightly lighter white bands on the body and face. Like a chipmunk pattern in pale red.

    I was thinking buffs but I'd never seen any with that dark of red on them without any of the black markings. Do you think they're all buffs or buffs and whites?
