    Ok, this girl was give to me. What color is she? And also how old do you think she is? Since she doesn't have the head poof, I'm guessing young because my other 2 silkies have big poofs on their heads. Any ideas?

    Its hard to tell from the tiny photos, but it looks like she could be lavender or white. Does she have any patterns or is her feathering a solid colour (sorry I can't really see)?

Also, I don't know why, possibly the body shape, but in the bottom photo she reminds me of an Araucana. Do you have a better photo?

    I don't think it looks like a silkie, it's look older too.. Can't tell the color.. Maybe a light buff?
