    IMG-1191.JPG I just got some silkies from tractor supply, and I was wondering what color they were. I'm pretty sure the left one is white (which I already have!), but what color is the other one? Lavender? Blue? White?

    Hard to tell from pic, but may end up white also.

    They're both white. The difference is that the greyish one is Silver based, the other is gold based or possibly Cream, but most likely gold.

    They will grow out to look alike only that Silver Whites tend to be 'cleaner'. Less leakage, if there is any.

    The TSC in my state sells white only silkies. The hatchery they use only offers white. If you find out what hatchery your TSC goes through then you can visit that website and see what exactly they have.
