    Bought four eggs off of Ebay. All 4 hatched. According to the sheet they sent, 2 are supposed to be Cameo blackshoulder pied and the other two are supposed to be Cameo white eyed. I think something got mixed up somewhere [​IMG]

    Congrats on your success rate! [​IMG]

    We hatched a cameo black shoulder pied this morning, and he looks just like your last pic, except he has a little more brown on his head.

    Quote:This is not correct. The light ones are not black shoulder. Too much color. The other light one, as you put it, in the last picture is possibly Cameo blackshoulder pied. Or it could be a white chick out of the pied. Will know for sure in a couple of days. The dark chick may be Cameo white-eyed but it is not showing the pattern.

    Thank you DMFarm. I appreciate your input. Silver pied is great. I'm hoping the one chick is white, seeing as my pen of pieds only want to lay me dark pied for some reason. Jury is still out on the other one. [​IMG]
