    I just had a hatch of lavenders and BBS and I think I have seperted my lavs from the others but am having a hard time determening the color of the splash over the lav.

    My camera is dead so I cant get pics of them. Could someone please post a few pics of newly hatched splash silkie chicks for me to do a comparison on?

    Thanks!

    The chick on the right turned out to be splash. The yellowish one became white:

    He (and I do mean he) ended up like this:

    Here's my one and only splash chick, at 1 day old - he/she is 3 months old now, but I don't have any recent pics...

    In comparison to the photos above, mine had MUCH lighter feet - and the beak was greyish as opposed to black. Don't know what that has to do with it tho?
