    Does any one know what a Lilac baby Silkie look like? and what should they look like full grown?

    Never heard of a lilac silkie before, do you possibly mean lavender/ self blue?

    That's looking like a blue, maybe a grey, but I'd go blue.

    I just spoke with the breeder and she said the parents are black and a white. When I questioned the Lilac color she told me maybe it's Lavender.

    To get lavender offspring the parents either must both be lavender (all chicks will be lavender) or one lavender and one split to lavender/ half lavender (this makes some lavender and non lavender chicks)
