    Also, do you know if it will be bearded or not? I forgot to ask.

    At just a couple of days old:

    By any chance did you get it from my pet chickens? It looks like a buff non bearded non crested silkie

    I was just going to add to my original post (since I thought it might be relevant, or at least explain why I didn't know)...

    I got it from a lady near me who hatched them. She got 12 Silkie eggs from someone else. She had a range of colors including light almost white, gray & brown/tan. We picked this one because it had a darker brown spot on its back.

    Thanks for your response!

    It is a buff sillkie. I have one in my brooder. It is a non bearded non crested. When it grows up it will be light light brown. I have seen them as like blond/brown with a little bit of shadowing white. Does that help?

    It helps a lot. I had no idea what to expect. So many surprises & so much patience.
