Purchased eggs on Ebay. I know, I know but I got a really good deal..............anyway, I bought 6, they sent 8, four hatched last week. Supposedly, they are Smith and Ribbick Stock, They come from a pen with a Blue rooster with Black on Split Lavender and Black hens. They are really nice looking chicks, the two light ones have a navy blue, almost purple tint to their fuzz, and the third is a rich black, however out popped a sick little chick covered in a film, like the yolk, with its eyes stuck shut. It was so small and sickly I was going to cull it, it looked like a Bobwhite quail chick. I put it in the brooder with its siblings, cleaned the eyes, and it has made a great recovery, and is active and eating and running around. It has a black back and a light face and chest. Is this what they mean by a split ? Any Ameracauna experts out there have an idea what I have hatched ? I am a pheasant/mallard/quail guy. Don't know much about chickens.......yet.
