    # 3 has pink on the bottom of the feet and # 4 and #10 are the same chick and had the shortest wing feathers upon arrival.

    I'm not quite sure what #3 is then. I suspect, however, that it could be the black version of Blue Orpington. When two blue birds are crossed together, you get 50% blue, 25% black, and 25% splash offspring.

    Thank you,

    We weren't sure about the black one, the blue one or white ones. The white ones are getting lighter and getting more gray markings on the wing and tail feathers. I have 10 total and there should be at least one cockerel in the bunch. :)
