I have a blue copper marans hen that is in the coop with a birchen marans roo & a blue copper marans roo. the bcm roo was hatched at the same time as her & they have been together every since. the bm roo is the boss of the coop. so I'm not sure who is the father of the two chicks that have hatched. both chicks were solid yellow when hatched and are getting whiter as their feathers come in.

I'm trying to get blue splashes by crossing my bcm hen with the bm roo. are these chicks splashes, but without the black spots? or will they come in later?

first two pics are at a day or two old & third pic is how one looks at present....fourth pic is the bcm hen & roo....and the bm roo is the last pic....

I would prefer it to be hen....so it will look like a birchen marans when grown, cause it looks nothing like the blue copper marans chicks i got?
