    It looks silver, but more so than the splashes usually look. Anyone know what it will grow up to be?

    All the blues I've hatched have been a lot darker (bluer?), and the splashes are usually lighter. I just thought this was a wierd color.

    I've had splash chicks that looked that color, but I'm leaning towards either light blue, or lavender.

    He's already dry...his fluff is just a little matted down, but dry. I'll post another pic tomorrow after he fluffs up.

    There are white chicks that hatch out with the silver gene. so they look silver, but the feathers will come in white.

    It is absolutely gorgeous, whatever the color turns out to be! Would you post pics of it as it feathers out? I would be very interested to see what color it does turn out to be. [​IMG]
