    I found this little girl (hopefully) at Agway. She was a bit lethargic, and was pasting up, but I fixed that and she is chipper as a chipmunk now. What color is she? She's off-white, a little"pinkish" but with some blue/white highlights. I don't think she is white. Either splash or buff, I think. I'm certain she is a Silkie, black skin and 5 toes and all, but Agway wasn't selling Silkies, only BR and RIR.

    Thanks. I kind of wanted splash or lavender, but buff is fine too.

    splash looks like a dirty white or a light blue with darker spots but no brown. lavender is a very light blue shade with a yellow belly on most. but yours could be a porcelain since you said buff white and blue have to wait and see as they tend to change some as they grow

    Yes I got a chick from a breeder and she said that she was lavender and now she is white. When she gets her adult feathers in then you will know.
