    Hi, I too got 2 chicks out of my blue splash pair that one had one white toe, another has two. The others all black skin. Neither parent has any white skin, so I was dumbfounded. I love the lil' things just the same. I'm not looking to show them, so not too concerned.. You are not alone! Haha [​IMG]
     
  5. Hi! Sometimes they start out with light toes and 'color up' as they mature.
