I have 2 new chicks that are blue with the tips of there feathers red. A new color? If it is what should I do? Could they grow out of it?

where is this red tipping located on the bird?
probably your blue isn't covering up the red like its supposed to.

The red is on the tip of all the feathers

Because the feathers of Silkies lack barbs and quills, a blue laced red pattern would be almost impossible.
