    Josh, If you have two Blues, they did not come from a "Black Silkie pair". Black x Black = 100% Black! One of the birds of your Black pair must be a Blue! [​IMG]

    really pretty show girl! I like seeing pics of your roo, he doesn't have a bad angle. [​IMG]

    Very cute chicks!! A lot of Blues can look black. Had me fooled-- I have a hen that is Blue but for a couple of months, I thought she was black. But half of her chicks are Splash... big clue in there. ha! This is my BLUE hen. Now I can tell the difference quite easily! If their undercoat is grey and not black all the way thru, you have a Blue.

    So bummed! I was just sitting and watching my Silkie babies and I noticed my only blue chick is developing crossbeak! [​IMG]
    I am assuming that it just gets worse with time? [​IMG]
    It's my DS favorite, so I am hoping it doesn't get too bad.
    I would keep it as a pet if it can eat and drink ok, but not use it for breeding if I ever get to that point.
