    Our 1 self-blue pied hen has been brooding up until i took her eggs away, i caught her with a dead baby in the egg running across the yard.

    I took the rest oif the eggs and put them i the bator and they all hatched. There is...
    2 black pieds
    1 chocolate
    4 self Blues? pied

    I have never had a Self Blue duckling, I adopted mom as a juvenile last November with some siblings. So my question is, ARE these babies Self Blues?
