    I just had my first BBS orp egg hatch and now wonder how long before I will know which is which color wise. The first one looks ....well - wet at the moment , but other than that...blue with white on the wing tips. When will I know for sure what color is what?

    Will likely be blue. You would know black and splash are almost white at hatch.

    Cool.... I don't have to wait to know...I love that! The waiting for them to hatch has been almost unbearable.
