    my own black Silkie egg -chick hatched on 11/12
    question: any ideas on why Blue Wyandotte chicks hatched out the white chicks, one with buff color and one speckled with light grey feathers..
    they are from what I ordered as guaranteed pure Blue Wtyandotte eggs.? I love the colors, one looks buff the other maybe laced buff.?

    You ordered eggs and these aren't from your pairings?
    If that's the case, you need to call the hatchery and ask them.

    I have contacted them, they asured me they have never had anyone say they have gotten anything but Blue Wyandottes hatch..they were a very reputable company I'm told. They are as puzzled as I am with the hatch.
    I was asked to keep them updated with the way they feather out..I am absolutely in love with them..they are beautiful..just asking how they could hatch out white, both started out white, then
    one, getting a golden color around its neck, the other has a light greyish type laced feathering, its body is still white under the belly and under the wings..beautiful birds none the less..

    Looks like you got mixed breed chicks. The Wyandottes look like they have pea combs. And one of the Orpington chicks looks like it has a rose comb.

    Are you in Europe or Australia?
    There are pictures of blues, blue/red and silver/blue in the following link.
    That said, I didn't know there are blues in the US.
