    I recently hatched 4 silkie chickens, They are now 5 weeks old. Two I'm sure of their color, one supossed to be red but he/she looks a little dark as his feather come in. The last one, I'm lost, He/she came from a partridge hen& rooster. I thought maybe Cuckoo, but i was looking at chicks of about the same age and they look much darker.

    1. The "red" one

    Thank you!

    Welcome to BYC! I have no idea what color your silkies are and hope somebody else will chime in.

    I'm thinking they are maybe the colors i think and just not as quality as claimed.Considering, I ended up with out of 4 only one with 5 toes, and one with one foot 5 and the other 4. They are just pets, so its ok. I actually like the one with one foot with 5 and one with 4. Its interesting.

    Or maybe Im just too impatient and should wait until they feather out a little more.
