These silkies are about 30 hours old, and are my first experience with silkies. What colors will I have?

This one is my favorite. It's kind of a mix of whites, grays, browns, blacks, yellows... very cute.

So the next three pictures are silkie #1:




Here is silkie #2. I'm assuming it will be white? It's a pale yellow.


Here are silkie #3 and #4. They're the same color.



These are silkies #5 and #6. I'm assuming the one is black (he's a little washed out by the flash in this pic - he's much darker), but I'm unsure about the rusty redish-brown one.


And for side-by-side comparison, here's a photo of the whole silkie gang:

I'm so glad you asked this question!!!
I too am having silkie babies and the one of mine I thought was black doesn't look like your black one, he has some yellow on him too. I can't wait for the experts to answer your question. Your babies are gorgeous!!!

Thanks so much Julie! I'm so excited! I wanted a variety of colors. Woo hoo!
Here's a picture of chick #2 from the back (next to #1.) Still think white?
