    You have to keep in mind with any chicken the color can change completely with the first molt. Most pumpkins are hatched yellow but turn anywhere from white, to ginger, to wheaton. I have several silkie chicks hatched light gray and one has already turned black. Unless you know the genetics of your silkies you will have to wait and see.
