    I bought some hatching eggs a while ago and everything turned out to look like Light Sussex...except two. Pictures below:

    Any ideas as to what what they're mixed with or if it's just a normal coloration that happens from time-to-time?

    they could vary on color...... I have learned not to count a color as that birds ture color til after an adult molt which yours have not done yet by this picture.

    I agree, they're probably pure, depending on the quality of the parents they just get poor coloring from time to time.
