    Well here are my 2 Silkies...Can anyone tell me what color she is? Not the white one of course. I have heard of Red before but I don't think its a recognized color, so is she a buff? She is pet quality but she is a pet so she is alright by me..

    This is Cocoa aka The Love Chicken. She follows me arround, like being petted and jumps up in my lap..

    Looks like a dark buff but may be a light red. More red than buff. I think normally red's are darker. Love the color though.

    They are both hens. She had no wattles or comb till about 3 days before she laid. Matter of fact neither had them, so it was a def. sign of laying for me. She also has the puffball hairdoo which none of the Roos had, only the hens.
