Hatched BLRW eggs- are these what the chicks should look like?

    I bought some BLRW eggs (to hatch strictly for egg laying pets, not show). So far I have 4 chicks out and dry and 3 more partially out of the shell.
    And each one is colored differently. I am not familiar with this breed but do know that they can be a few different colors (blue vs splash) so I'm hoping that's why they aren't all the same color. But if anyone can confirm (or attempt to!) that these are BLRW then I would feel a whole lot better :)

    Not the best pictures, but its hard to get their exact colors with the light I have in my incubator room.
    There is a group pic and then individual pics of each of the 4 chicks.

    Thanks![​IMG]

    I see 3 shades of chicks. Maybe you have a blue, black and splash!

    Ok here are some updated pics of the ones in question. I have 6 total and 4 of them show blue (light in color so I'm thinking splash) but these two don't. I know you can get dark blue as well as black with the blue breedings. Is that what these might be or do are these not BLRW?

    Can you get pictures with regular room lighting or wait for daylight? They are too dark to really tell.

    They look like my BLRW when they were chicks. They don't start out with those pretty laced feathers, but they'll come in soon enough (when they go thru their next juvenile moult).
