    I hatched out 11 B/B/S Silkie chicks, 4 are very light grey and solid. I was hoping to get some splash. Are splash chicks born with spots or do they come in with feathering? Mine are only a week old. Thanks, Sharon

    These are all splash.

    Day olds.

    The light light blueish ones are splash [​IMG]

    They will get their splash markings in as they feather out.
