    hi I am new to this site. I have had chickens and ducks for about a year. I am hatching our new set of chicks and ducks right now and I have a question for all of you experts. I just had a chick hatch and it has a turquoise bluish color on its [​IMG]bottom. I have never seen this before. Anyone have any answers ?

    I've never seen that before but hopefully another greeter will come along that can explain. Did the chick hatch in an incubator? Maybe there was something blue colored in that?

    Hello!
    [​IMG]
    Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC. Me neither, but did you have them on news paper? It could be color transfer.
