    The 2 on the outsides came from a lady that said she's getting 'mostly lavender' but had all colors mixed in. The one in the middle is black from a different set. I thought they were all black till they started getting feathers in. The wings look gray. Any idea? Or is it too soon to tell?

    Hard be certain, but they're looking barred to me.

    Thanks! I can't wait to see how they turn out. They aren't supposed to be frizzled, but his feathers are a little different then the other 2. I guess time will tell.

    Look to be either black or dark blue. NOT barred/cuckoo.

    They look like they will be gray to me. This is how my Gray Silkie roo started out.

    Any chance you can take a pic from the top and another with their wing spread?
