    Didn't know where to put this. My oegb was hatched a silver color. Now he is white. Is this normal? In the pen were a white male, white female, splash female, and blue female any of those could be his parent. Another question. When breeding him to my blue female what color babies could I get?

    Here is a pic from a few weeks ago. You can see the silver fuzz he had still on his head

    the change is color is nothing unusual. Answering your question on breeding is difficult not knowing who mom is and if the white gene is dominant or recessive in this bird.

    I would separate them and breed him to each hen in turn. Mark the eggs and incubate them separately. See what turns out. He is a beautiful bird.

    I don't have those hens they belong to someone else I was just listing his possible parents. I only have the blue hen.
