I'm in the midst of a hatch of 10 BBS silkie eggs. Two of the babies who just hatched have several partial pink toes - is this a disqualification or defect? I can tell already that they have awesome foot feathering. Should I not use them for breeding or would this breed out if crossed with other birds?

Thanks for any input!!!

Brody's Broodello :

It is common for splash to have pigment loss at hatching. The color comes in after a few weeks. It is ok, don't worry.

Exactly!​
