    Got these from Welp as well, I ordered Blk Sexlinks, but got these gray blue birds in there. Posted them as chicks too. What do you think now? Some have a little brown collar, and some just have a blue body and black head. Yellowish legs.

    They look like a black star almost but blue instead of black. What other breeds could they have that would be blue but not andalusians?

    They appear to have single combs. Some of them have slate legs. I am wondering if I have 2 breeds.

    OK I am not trying to answer this, just learn some more from you guys. Don't Andalusians have white earlobes? Maybe these are too young to show the earlobes? How old do they usually show earlobe color? Why does no one say Blue Rock? Those are sexlinked too if you do Blue to Barred right? I guess it couldn't be that because this hatchery doesn't carry them? Thanks in advance, you guys are a great wealth of knowledge!
