So... silkies have black skin, we all know this. I have a blue silkie with pitch black skin, and I have a black silkie/cochin mix with pitch black skin. Well, bought some bantam EE eggs awhile back, and got two surprise eggs. They hatched out silkies or silkie mixes. Can't get ahold of the breeder, but I'd like to know if they're pure or mixies. They've got the head tuft that my blue silkie had, the five toes, etc, but, their skin is more of a slate color than black. So, are they pure or mixies? If they're pure, I have to kiss the breeder (member of this forum!) because I've been wanting a white silkie. If they're mixies, well, hopefully they're mixed with the bantam EE's, lol.
