    This is the first time i have ever hatched out a chick so light. in the past they have all been Black or regular Blues. Yesterday this Powder Blue cute as could be little thing popped out of an egg and another followed! the 2nd looks to be darker so i think it'll be closer to the blue i am used to but i am stumpped about the real light baby, help please??

    moms are:
    Black cochin
    Black sizzle
    Blue sizzle

    Roo:
    Blue sizzle... maybe lemon blue? he has a lot of that pretty gold/yellow over his body.

    The pics arent the best for color, i just moved them to a temporary brooder in the living room.

    I would just be in HEAVEN if i had 2 Splash babies!! The 1 baby is definitely a Black Sizzle, it has a BIG top hat, just like mom and dad [​IMG]

    The real super light baby is a smooth black Cochin mixed with the Sizzle roo. it only has 3 black toes.

    I'm guessing 1 splash, 1 lighter blue, and 1 dark blue.

    Looks just like my gorgeous boy did at that age, Big Blue Fancypants, a Splash Cochin Roo.

    I'm gonna say 2 splash and a black. If there is any "true" black anywhere on it, you usually can bet it's a black.
