    When picking out my chicks at the feed store a few weeks ago they had some blue wyandotte chicks for sale so I decided to get some, but one chick in with them was all white but with a few feathers with a tint of blue. It is now 3 weeks old and is all white still, but with blue tinted tail feathers and is the same size and body type as the blue wyandottes.

    The people at the pet store called it Albino but I always thought albinos had pink eyes, his are black like the rest.

    Is it going to turn blue when its older? Or is it a different breed?

    Thank you,
    -Jay

    -All of the pictures I take of it you cant see the blue tint, just white-

    Sounds like a splash, which is what you can get when you breed blue to blue or splash to blue. Here is a splash Ameraucana to compare.

    So if it is a splash, does that mean it will always be white with a blue-ish tint? Or will it be all white the the picture you posted above?
