    I wonder if these new lil darlins (Hector & Annabel) are wheaten or bb red.... doesn't matter. We're totally in love. I may get a second hen for Hector today as well as a first Silkie. Work is going to pass slowly! Can't wait!

    wheaton, BB red hens are much darker where as Wheaton hens are buff or blonde.

    Thanks egh and seedcorn! I had thought that the pair was wheaten. Hector's hackle and saddle are fiery orange-red. The pix you posted really helped! They are very pretty birds.
