    So my first attempt at hatching produced 3 out of 5 so far. I only have 1 Breeding pair at the moment and this is what I got. Is it normal to have the color variation from the same pair?

    Hi there and :welcome
    Congratulations on the hatch!
    What breed are the pair?
    If they are both purebreds and both the same colour/variation
    Of that breed then the chicks should all be the same colour.
    If you post a picture of the pair we might be able to help you with breed
    And if they are different colours or not.
    Goodluck,
    Fionn.

    Grats on your hatch :D

    I don't have much experience with this but it's possible, your striped ones look your classic brown/wild type pharaoh like the parents and the blonde ones could be mostly white, Italian, possibly silver? (I've never hatched those) and probably some other colors too :D

    It will be interesting to see what they turn into!
