    Hi! I have two 6 month old bantam silkies and I would love to know what color they are and if they are bearded or non-bearded. I've searched online and I think I've narrowed it down to blue, gray, or lavender. The breeder that I got them from when they were week old chicks didn't really have a definite answer for me, so any help would be great! Thank you!

    This is Toshi, he is my silkie roo (he is the sweetest boy and really enjoys posing for the camera [​IMG]).

    [​IMG]. I don't have any experience with silkies so I'm not for sure on the color but they are stunning! [​IMG]

    They are stunning chickens

    I would guess the first one is blue and the second is splash.
