    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. [​IMG]
    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!!![​IMG] 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!!![​IMG]
