    Wow she looks so light!! I would have expected them to be darker than that.

    yes she is on the light side,the tom is darker and so are her babys,but she is a cutie pie and very protected for her babys,nothing get closer to them

    there is a fine line between silver and white,when i first got the hen thought she was just a white turkey hen with brown in the feathers,later i was told she was a silver

    She is a silver Auburn or just a silver? Sorry for the stupid question, just making sure I am not misunderstanding when you say Silver. [​IMG]
