Attention Especially: Angie, Cyn, Julie, Robin, and Sandy and to all others who might take the time to provide your input.
I am attempting to learn color identification in blue/black orpingtons since they are new to me. I would very much appreciate all of your help. Sexing is not an issue at this point.

Chick No's 1 thru 4 are from a brood of 10 chicks received.
There are two (2) chicks this color. 1 pullet and 1 roo

I'm guessing blue on this one. Right?

This will probably turn out to be the prettiest chick only because I think it is so ugly right now.

I am at a loss on this one.

Chick No's 5 thru 7 are from a brood of fifteen (15) received 2 wks. ago.
There are ten (10) chicks the color of No's 5 & 6 from a brood of 15 chicks received.


There are only two (2) chicks this color and the remainder (3)are black in the brood. Blue?


Does anybody see a Blue Boy or Suede in this bunch?

This is the first splash I ever hatched, at 3 weeks old, then at 4 weeks old:



This is the second Splash Orp cockerel I hatched from another batch, Skye's brother, at 5 wks:
