    I was going to post pics but I may not need to since from what I've seen a lot of the jap chicks aren't to hard to identify, well to the trained eye lol. I can post pics it's just kind of difficult on my phone...

    1 is solid white/yellow- I'm thinking it is a black tailed white? With research it seems that's what color their chicks are but could it also be a solid white adult?
    1 is white with a very pale pale blue back, lightest blue I've seen, it actually looks very light grey. Maybe blue mottled (or splash) or a grey adult?
    1 is white marked the same as the one before, except with a black back. Black mottled?
    1 could be what the previous one us but I really think instead of a black back that it's a darker/medium blue color, it looks lighter than black to me honestly. Maybe blue mottled?

    The 3 chicks with the colored backs are 50% white & 50% other 2nd color, do I don't think any will be solid black adults, their chicks seemed to be more 75% black & 25% white.

    Thanks very much for any opinions, I really want to get into this breed & could use your help [​IMG]

    yellow / white chicks can be white birds or black tailed whites
    solid black with a white dot on its head is a mottled
    black and white ones are black and grey birds
    reddish yellow ones are buff tailed blacks
