    I need some help identifying this chick. The father is an IB split to Cameo and white. and the mother is either a Cameo hen or an IB hen split to white. [​IMG]
    Here is a picture of it (the one in front) with an IB chick on the left and a Cameo on the right.

    Also I have another question. Is this Cameo chick split to white since it has some white flight feathers. It has the same parents.

    I'm sorry I can't help you, I have very little experience identifying colors. But if you ship them to me I can let you know when they grow up! [​IMG]

    Quote:I totally would ship them to you...but they are already sold. I have 20 chicks sold and only have 13 living so far. I have 15 eggs in the incubator, so if all goes well I will have some extras. If I do have some extras I would sell them to you. Let me know.

    Quote:To make sure I understood that right. The dark one might be a spalding. If it is a spalding how would've I gotten that with the parents I have listed above? The one I wasn't sure about is a IB chick. I will get a better picture of that cameo chick with the white. Sorry, I am new to all these different colors and patterns and how to get them.

    Could be the lighting in the pic, but sure looks dark, if spalding one parent would have to be carring spalding .

    Here is another picture of the supposed Spalding. In this picture it looks lighter but like I said his back is black. It is also a lot darker then my IB's. Oops I forget to get a picture of that cameo. Will get that tomorrow.
