    I'm guessing buff or white - more leaning toward white. Are the eggs from your flock, or purchased from someone else? I've had some real surprises from shipped silkie eggs, and had to play the color guessing game myself.

    Way to light to be a blue.

    If it hatched out of your blacks, then I'm thinking you have some Recessive white in your bloodlines. That chick is definitely white.
