    I had my first naturally hatched chicks today( YES!!!![​IMG]) . They are IB, but they seem different. The ones I have incubated all have the normal tanish head, neck, and belly, bit these are really yellow in the head, neck and belly. It somewhat goldish yellow, very vivid. Why would they be so yellow? Does it have anything to do with hatching naturally?

    did the eggs come from flock containing white eye, white eyed pied or silver pied? Could be a white eyed chick as that's the description I would have given for white eyed chicks, especially those with silver pied in ancestry.

    Well they could be, both are India blue from what I know, but the mom has 1 white primary on each wing.
