I have an adorable chick who hatched out on the first day of summer. I named it Solstice. It is the mutt offspring of my flock being mothered by Archie, the Columbian Wyandotte. No idea which birds are biological parents because it does not look like ANYONE in my flock. Now it has tiny wing feathers and they look almost... blue. I mean the shade is a tad too brown I think, but they are definitely grey feathers. And it's legs are brownish... maybe greenish. Not black or grey or yellow like the adults' legs. I am baffled! Here's the possible parents: Daddy is either Dusty the (splash) Blue laced Red Wyandotte or Indigo the (black) Blue Andalusian Mother could be: Columbian Wyandotte, Gold Laced Wyandotte, Barred Rock, Blue laced Red Wyandotte, or Buff Orpington. But as I said, none of them looked like Solstice as chicks. Here Solstice is at 3 days old: So what does everyone think? Could it grow up blue? It has no markings on any feathers yet... just grey. Here's my flock, more or less: UPDATE: Wing feathers kept coming in brownish grey, but the breast/neck/back feathers came in white, then black, then white...Solstice is barred, and from what I can tell, a BOY. But at least now I know who mommy is... Rufus, my barred rock hen. And with his dark legs I can be fairly sure his daddy was Indigo, the blue andalusian. So the bluest I can hope for is blue barred. He's cute and all, but I still can't keep another rooster.
