    I have no idea what pen this one is from, but it looks like it has a lot more white than the usual split whites I'm used to seeing.

    Looks like a purple or cameo split to white to me. My white eyes show speckling later on not as chicks. At 3mo like an india blue when it first starts snowing large flakes.

    It does look more like my little purple that I just hatched from a shipped egg, but all of my adults are blues.

    If any of those adult blues came from my eggs the first year we traded, they could be carrying silver pied or WE genes.
