    Okay this one is from Cynthias Velvet and Suede. She looks more black and was a black chick, but has lacing? In the photo the flash was on so it lightened her color a bit. What color do you think she will end up? Will she molt and become lighter?

    She looks like a dark blue to me. Black is a consistent color and does not have lacing.

    I agree. She's dark blue and she has that look like, "Get that stinkin' camera outa my face or else!", LOL. Black is very, well, inky black. I had one that looked similar that was a brother to Suede and he had me guessing, but he was a really dark blue. Now that I have Scout, I can really see it.
    I do think your boy is a splash. The only splashes I've ever hatched have been boys! I want my splash pullet!
