Unusual kitten color?

My friend’s cat had kittens but I noticed two of them seemed to be an unusual color. They both had chocolate brown faces, ears and socks, but their coats were silver, with no tabby markings. The mother is a chocolate point and the father a silver tabby. Some kittens in the litter were silver tabby, black and these chocolate-point, silver haired kittens. Is this color unusual? Because I’ve never seen an adult cat the color of these kittens.
Anyway, will they grow out of this color? And could someone help me find some pictures of kittens like these?

    They’re simply "pointed" cats – nothing unusual whatsover. In mixing a cat with pointed markings with a tabby you’ll get some tabby, some pointed and some that are "Lynx Point" with tabby markings just on the points. Pointed markings in kittens tend to darken as they get older.

    More important question – why did your friend let their cat breed? She’s clearly not a reputable breeder breeding show quality animals. And these kittens mean that many cats or kittens will be put to death at your local shelter since they’ll take homes from them. Is she really that selfish that she doesn’t mind killing shelter animals?

    Do you have any photos? Their coats will likely change as they get older, but it’s kind of hard to tell what they look like just by written description.

    It’s all in the genetics.

    You have chocolate with silver bits flavored pudding)

    You may know the mother, but with multiple kittens that are not identical, it means multiple fathers.

    The female controls fertilization, so it is up to her.

    Without pictures, it is impossible to predict if the colors will change as they grow.
