    The people said it was blue but it kinda looks black and she has 6 toes but the 5th and the 6th toe are merge and you have to look close to see it other then the 2 toe nails. Here is the link to the album. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Let me know what you think [​IMG]

    Are you buying?

    She looks average, but the incorrect toes would be a deal breaker for me.

    You need to wait for the picture to fully load on FB before you go and copy the link. The link name changes to a name you can actually link to. I did that same thing a few times until I caught on [​IMG]

    Edit: Nevermind I see you fixed it [​IMG] Umm it looks black to me... unless cam colour is off... I guess it could be dark blue but to me it looks black *shrug* Pretty thing though [​IMG]

    Are you talking about the first one on the left? I think I see a nub there but there is alot of colour merging. Do you plan on breeding her? Because I would think, and Im sooooo NOT a geneticist, but I would think that the gene for 6 toes could be passed on and silkies should have 5.
