    I have some chicks that I'm not sure about the color. I have a pied white eye purple male and a regular purple male. My purple hens died last fall so they are with black shoulder and an india blue hen. Are these chicks purple?

    They look to be Purple and if they are they should be hens as well.

    Quote:I read you have to have a cameo male to get cameo, even if you have a cameo hen. Is that right? I don't have a cameo male and none are split to cameo as far as I know.

    It's not a Cameo chick, if the males are Purple and the hens are Blue these will be Purple chick hens.
