Last spring, while at the local farm and home center. My wife and daughter persuaded me to let them get a dozen silkie chicks. After all was said and done, we wound up with a rooster and five hens. The rooster is red, two of the hens are partridge and three are white. I collected a set ten eggs from these hens. All were fertile and all hatched! Four are mahogany colored chicks and six are black. With three of the hens being white, I figured there would some buff or yellow chicks in the mix somewhere. Is this typical of silkies?
