    I am so excited!! I recently purchased a trio of Blues from peachick and tossed some of their eggs in the bator. My still air LG and/or thermometer really suck and I only got 2 out of 12 fertile eggs to make it to hatch day. I am blessed with these two cuties. Are they most likely blues? What would a Splash look like...more white?

    I have 11 more of their eggs under a broody [​IMG] hoping she takes good care of them!

    They could be a very light blue but I am leaning more towards splash.

    From the top: Splash, Splash, and Blue

    I am really hoping for some Splashes, so that would be cool.

    Thanks for adding pics!

    Your one Splash is really light, almost white. I haven't had any hatch out that light yet. But this is only my first group of eggs. Your blue is much darker than these two chicks. Mine only hatched yesterday morning, so I have a little while til their wing feathers start coming in.

    Quote:I know. I bet she feathers out almost all white. I think the blue of mine is going to be a winner!

    My splashes start out pearly white. So far, yours look light blue.

    The parents are all Blues. I can get blue, black and splash chicks right?
