Hi,
I was wondering about some colors on my chicks I just got.
1. These are Hamburgs. I'm pretty sure I have a Blue and a Splash. Am I correct?

2. Silkies. Left to right. Blue, Splash, Black. Am I correct? Thanks!

Close up of the splash. It has the biggest poof of them all!

Hamburgs look like both are splashes. Silkies are blue splash black.
Thank you! I was hoping to get a blue on the Hamburgs. One is blue on top, with a white belly. But the other is like completely white, with a little grey here and there. I was thinking the white one to be a splash for sure. Strange that they ate differently colored like that.

The darker one will probably feather out to have more blue than the lighter one
