Ameraucana Baby Pics- Any Idea what color?

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by Solsken Farm, Jul 31, 2008.

  1. Thoughts on a color for these babies? Pips and Peeps, these are from you, marked blue (BF).

    Are they splashes?

    They are so precious!

    They look buff to me [​IMG]
     
  3. Quote:Thanks for the reply. They came out of blue eggs. I should have mentioned that. I will go edit that post right now. And I don't mean blue as in the eggshell, as in from blue hens. [​IMG] So buff wouldn't make sense. Sorry I left that info out.

    They look like buff, did Jean send you any extras? I hatched Buffs from Jean and they look the same.

    If they were marked BF I would imagine they were buff [​IMG] My b/b/s were marled BL and BL/SPL

    If the egg was marked BF then they are buffs. BL is blue/black, white, wtn is wheaten or blue wheaten, bl/spl is blue black or splash and silver are marked silver.

    How many little chickies did you get? [​IMG]
     
  9. They are still hatching Jean. Four so far. 2 black and 2 splash, um I mean, buff.[​IMG]

    I had some harrowing later hatch issues, so we will see. I had 9 going into day 18, would have been 10, but my daughter bumped my arm just as I was transfering them out of the turner into the carton. [​IMG] I waxed it, but am pretty sure it won't make it. I am praying I get more. It is day 22.
     
  10. Adam, do you have adult pictures of those little cute buff babies?
