    I am on day 21 of incubating blue/black/splash orpingtons. I have had 1 to hatch and it is yellow. Do blues hatch out yellow? Or have I been hoodooed?

    Is the chick yellow or a light whitish grey? My splashes hatch out very pale greyish/white...not yellow.

    I just found out that a white orphington was added into the bunch! Whew! I was getting worried! [​IMG]

    That would explain the yellow chick [​IMG]

    That is great. How many eggs are you waiting on? Do you mind my asking who the breeder is of the chicks? Could be another great source for whites.[​IMG]
    Good luck with the rest of the hatch. [​IMG]
