    Hard to tell on the white , but if from pied yes its white. these peachicks have not dry off enought....you are removing them to soon from the incubator, leave them until they have time to dry off ,and rest after hatching. They will get chilled doing that. Thats a pied ,not SP.


    Nice job hatching......

    I have been reading the other threads and it is great to see you got some more to hatch!!

    Can't help you with anything other than being a cheerleader as I am VERY new to peas.

    dark pied don't have much whites , so looks like a pied. yes the other is a white then. peachicks don't need removed from incubator untill 24 hours, after hatching.

    THE PIED would be my guess, from the white hen , which is from pieds not SP , reason you got a pied. I was worry about the white chick it look way to wet to be removed, i know its hard not to remove then ASAP , it looks ok in the last pics. but try to wait untill they fuff out.
