    I bought in some Creole Orpington chicks to hatch under my broody. They hatched at the weekend, two are black with yellow spots on their heads, and yellow rumps, three are yellow with a small dusting of brown/gold. I thought they would all be the same colour - I know Orps are not autosexing and am confused as to what I actually have here! Gorgeous, of course, but aren't all babies:)

    There Crele.

    Your right,
    They should be all the same color.

    In order to be a true Crele they would have to have Black Breasted Red in them and I dont think that Orps. come in Black Breasted Red.
    What you could do is take some pics. of them and post them over at Breeds, Genetics, & Showing
    should get a good idea what you have.....
