    Hi BYC friends!

    I'm considering purchasing a few bearded Silkie chicks from a breeder near by and am curious about the color. Some of the others (that sold) look more blue but these seem so black in spots. Someone had mentioned leakage? I'm relatively new to Silkies and the chicken world. These babes were born very early this morning! Also, what's the orange on the tip of the toe? Anxious to hear Watcha' think?
