    NOTE: SEE UPDATED PICS BELOW AT 2 1/2 weeks old.

    I would really love one splash and one blue out of the six eggs I have hatching right now. Two are already hatched but I have NO clue now what they are. I thought they were splash but someone said she didn't think they were. What are they? I am suppose to have blue/black/splash orps. The blues and blacks aren't that light are they? HELP! If anyone has pics of their baby splash or blues can they post them please??

    Thank you!

    Here are the two black ones...one almost sort of looks to be a splash (the first one)?

    Here is the other black

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    HERE IS THE UPDATED PICS OF JUST ONE OF THEM>>>IT'S THE VIOLET LOOKING ONE AND SHE NOW HAS WHITE LEGS???IS THIS THAN CONSIDERED A SPLASH ORP? I will take a pic of the other splash girl later tomorrow. I only kept the two splashes. I can get a picture of the blue boy too...my friend has him and he's CUTE. The black that looked like a splash ended up with a mottled front chest. Very cute but confusing too.

    Are you sure they are orpingtons? They do not look like BBS coloring.

    editing to add a photo

    Here are some of my BBS

    The silvery looking one is splash. The other two are blue.

    EEK! I sure hope they are! I ordered them from western chick and paid good money for them. She listed them as BBS orps.

    Hmmm. They look a lot like our Blue Laced Red Wyandotte chicks looked like, but certainly not like any Orpington I have ever seen... You could check the comb to confirm or deny the Wyandotte theory. l
