Thank you! Daisy is a splash marans (we thought she was an andalusian originally) so they might not look exactly the same. I think andalusians are way prettier than marans, but don't tell Daisy that.

Rest in Peace Sweet Vivica - Thank you for teaching me so much.

Actually, I think your lovely baby looks like a Lavender Orpington, @ashleynicole. :) Here's what my Lav Orp from Meyer looked like as a young chick.

He had a combination of lavender and yellow down, while my Blue Splash Marans was a smoky white. She also feathered in white before developing splashes.

This is my handsome Lav boy, T.Roo, as he looks now.
