    So some breeder sold me these chicks a month ago telling me that these are the chicks of silver blue salmon brahma.. They were 2 months old at that time but now i see them no being like silver blue salmon brahma.. Now some people are saying that these are some splash or splash partridge or BSO.. Age in these pics is around 3months.. I seriously dont get what colour these 2 chicks are please help!! (Ignore the buff coloured chick in pics)

    Not sure what color that is, but you have a cockerel.

    Do you know what generation they are? Meaning first, second, and third generation crosses in making new colors can often throw color variations. While fourth and fifth generations will usually breed true.

    Definitely not splashes then. I'd say you got what you paid for. Excellent looking stock. Outstanding Brahmas.
