    I bought some hatching eggs off e-bay all but one of them hatched!!! Pretty good for shipped eggs. I am wanting to know what colors I have. I bought B/B/S eggs and threw in 2 from my white silkies.
    [​IMG] Te one on the right has yellow feet and beak, but has five toes. It is black with a yellow top knot and face with black around it eyes. I e-mailed the lady and asked if maybe a rooster sneaked in from another pen or she got an egg mixed up from another pen, and I wasn't sure if it hatched out of a blue, black, or splash egg since my broody orp hatched them for me. She replied there was no way it was a mix and probably came out of her black silkie pen. She said they were blacks that had not been mixed for several generations but occasionally a recessive gene will pop up. Is this common?
    Will these chicks turn out blue or splash?
