    No flash used, these are normal lighting pictures just curious if it looks just light blue or splash? I assume it's just light blue but I don't know.

    I don't see any that look either blue or splash. Black on left. What colour of parents on right and in middle?

    Quote:um lol the one on the far right is a blue. Its the one in the middle im unsure if it's a blue or a splash.


    It's a black copper marans on the left, in the middle the mother is an EE (gold with black), and the blue is an Ameraucana from a blue hen and a blue roo.


    ETA the middle ones sire could either be a splash Ameraucana, a buff orpington, or a bc marans.


    ETA again.. after talking to my firend think it MAY be a fawn duckwing that makes more sense to me [​IMG] but i know ZERO about those genetics lol.

    It looks like a columbian (from orpington?). Lakenvelder chicks look like that.
    it looks black patterned, but it could be blue patterned also.
