    I have two 3 week old white silkies that were both white when i got them. Now, in the past week, one of them has started to get dark feathering on the wing feathers that are coming in. Could it be a splash? Also, this is all new to me, is this silkie bearded? i am thinking not

    A couple days old

    Oh, oh - looks like a Splash instead of White? I love the Splashes myself. Cute little guy/girl. I don't know enough to comment on whether it's bearded or not, hopefully someone with more experience will weigh in.

    Definitely splash, and a cute little thing. I think it might be bearded, but that will take a while to fill in (from my experience). [​IMG]
