    I bought some BBS Orpington eggs here on BYC. I'm not sure what color these chicks are. The eggs were marked blue, but they seem really light to be blue, compared to pics I looked at on feathersite. They almost seem to be lavender, maybe splash. Any orpington pros out there that can tell me what color these two are?

    Both chicks together, with their black sibling.

    They look splash to me; BBS means blue, black and splash.

    I'd guess splash.
