    I have two modern game chicks and I am trying to figure out their colors. I got them through Ideal. The first is a solid light blue all over, with very dark grey legs and beak. No other color on the chick.

    The second is solid black with a white spot under its chin, one on its rump, and on the wing tips. No white on its belly at all. The flash from my camera made it look lighter than it really is. Its legs and beak are also black in color.

    The first one could be Self Blue or the light blue version of Silver Blue. The black one is probably Birchen. The Brown Reds are completely black as chicks.

    Either when the wing feathers are grown out, sometimes on birchen/brown reds will show traces of white or brown respectively. If wings grow out solid black you will just have to wait until the neck feathers finally come out, if birchen/brown red, the color will be there. So, you will find out very soon or not for a month.. have fun! [​IMG]
