    I have chicks hatching, is there any way to tell by their color now if they are going to be wheaton, blue-wheaton, or possibly splash wheaton? Any tell-tale signs?

    I think I was told one has white down and the other has yellow down..... I have noticed a color difference in mine when they were all fluff after hatching. Some looked almost white and the others were yellow. I will let you know when they get big which was which! LMAO
