    Love love love this site!
    I only had one egg hatch of our tiny flock. Mom and baby come to the patio every morning for a snack while we drink our coffee. I enjoy them a great deal.
    Here's a picture of the baby. Any guesses as to the color or sex? Mom is in the pic, dad is an IB.

    The chick is an India blue Black Shoulder which means that both of the parents are split to BS.

    What does it mean to be split to BS?

    It means that both parents carry BS or the chick would not be BS. Splits do not necessarily show in either color or pattern, some will, but most do not.

    Any guesses as to what his/her color will be? This chick is not brown like my others had been. More white. I'm a little excited as you can tell :) Thanks for your expertise!

    The 'color' is India Blue, the pattern is Black Shoulder.

    Here's her recent pic. I think she's a hen. What do you think?

    I do think you're correct. @KsKingBee, what do you think?
