    my hatch in early April these are some of the babies. I wonder if someone could tell me if the light lavender/grey?? colors are splash. I bought the hatching eggs and this is what I got.. and what a great foster mom the white silkie is. I wanted a splash so bad
    and thought they were white when they were hatched but now next to the white they are not white. I am partially colored blind to blue-grey and green so it takes me a bit to see there is a diff. Thanks cj
    The pick of the chick peeking out from under the hen is also this grey lavendar color. Thanks for you help. Cj

    I have a blue splash Maran with similar coloring. I would have to say that looks like a blue splash silkie to me!

    What a cute batch of chicks!

    Quote:There is no such thing as a Blue Splash... There is Blue and there is Splash but not both in one. Unless I am missing something then that is the correct way.

    They do kinda look like them.
