    I have salmon and blue faverolles hatching out. 3 are yellow, but one is striped??? I bought the eggs from a reputable and registered breeder.
    Any ideas???:confused:[​IMG]
    He is the one still wet. At first I thought he was a blue. Now I'm not sure...

    I will try to get a better picture tomorrow. I contacted the Faverolles club here and to my dismay they said a striped chick may be a cross.

    I just looked at the Faverolles thread on this forum. Someone had a salmon with stripes that they bred themselves. Apparently it happens. Just strange that experts I asked didn't know. Thank goodness for BYC :cd

    Somewhere I have pictures of salmon chicks with racing stripes. I will post them later. Though if you look through the Fav thread there should be some. I know it's a huge thread. All of the blue chicks I hatched were solid colored.

    I would talk with the breeder to see if they added in extra eggs from an other breed or color

    I just got two last night!! This is my first adventure with chickens and I'm so excited! We have ten all together. Two faverolles (I'm most excited about them) two australorp, two Delaware, two golden buff & two brahma. I'm curious of which is which!!

    I can't find my pictures (I think they are on my dead computer) but here are someone else's chicks with the grey splotches/stripes. They are not uncommon.
