    I am not sure if it is a blue or gray silkie. What are your thoughts? I know the top one is black, but I am not sure about the other one.

    Definitely zero experience with Silkies here, but I'm leaning towards blue? [​IMG]

    Okay, just checking back in here. It has been a month since I asked what color my silkies are. Shortly after asking, the hen that was said to be blue began molting. Now her molt is over, and she is unrecognizable. Before she did not have a beard, she only had pin feathers inherited head, and she was a light gray color. Not no more. Now she is dark gray/black, has a beard, and has a fro![​IMG] Here is a picture of her. Do y'all still think she's blue? (She's the one in front)

    Wow, she does look black to me after her molt! [​IMG] Of course, I'll let a Silkie expert confirm that, since I've never actually had one yet. [​IMG]
