    She is a buff. I have never heard of a blonde silkie.

    Me either. And if you've heard blonde, that may be someones way for "sprucing" up a cull or pet quality bird to sale for a higher price. Quite common with Silkies. People will come up with all kinds of "color of the week" names for birds just to sell them for more money.
