My guess is one is a bearded grey but unsure if the second one is buff or red. These were hatched from eggs that I was told were from black and white silkies :-? . They were the only fertile eggs from this dozen and the second dozen were all infertile :-( . Won't be buying eggs ever again from this breeder in campbelltown nsw. Was rather surprised at the colours of these two after being told what colour the parents were :hmmm: at least both are pullets :thumbs:

The one on the left is blue, perhaps a splash

while the yellow colour one is gold, or also known as buff

Thanks.caladenia, I have other blues growing but much younger and don't look the same but could be due to different lines , what do you think of their type , look good to me but I'm a novice when it comes to silkies.. I have growing a choice of blue cockerel and splash partridge which would be better to keep. As for pullets will have these two in photo, two splash,two blue partridge, a blue , a black . I like the blue cockerals colour but with the pullets I'm keeping is he the better choice. :dontknow
