    Does anyone have a guess as to what color this baby will be? the egg wasn't marked-- the next ones are but not this one!

    India Blue, neat little chicks. Note how they hatch with wing feathers.

    Yes I did notice that, this chick just hatched yesterday and look at the feathers! The next one to hatch will be the purple or the other egg that's not marked, it may be a pied, and then the week after that I have a purple and 3 pieds if they make it to the hatcher~

    Purple are a sex link color. Post pics when they hatch. You can get whites from the pieds.
