    Ok, so I originally figured Charli was a black silkie. But seeing him in the sunlight today, I am starting to wonder. Even his new wing feathers just don't look that black. What do you all think???? Black, Dk. Blue, Gray, Silver????????

    Is it too soon to tell? Do I need to wait until all the feathers come in to know for sure?

    I would guess it is a dark blue, but I'm really not sure as I don't raise that color.

    Looks DK Blue to me. I have a black silkie and there was no doubt of her color when she was a chick.
