    Halloween chick hatched right on schedule but the color threw me. Black roo w/lav gene and dark blue hen w/lav gene. I was expecting black or blue but got this....

    I think that should probably be lav. I've had splash chicks hatch that color, but you shouldn't get splash from black x blue. I also had one cochin hatch with identical color, and now she looks "black laced blue", if that makes any sense.

    It could be a splash or a white.

    Quote:I'm running on very little sleep, So correct me if my brain is confuddled [​IMG], but I thought blue x black was how you got some splash coloring. Splash on splash = 100% splash of course right? I thought the chick looked lavender... [​IMG]

    I would think this would be a lavender chick. to my understanding lavender is a simple recessive gene that dilutes
    Black and blue coloring to a pale grey. Cute chick!
