No, I don't have mottled in my flock at all. Mine do keep quite a bit of white in them until adult molt, though. Not sure why, but I only have solid blacks and blues. I don't care for mottleds at all. (No offense to anyone that does.)
ETA: Will see if I can find some pics of similar chicks, a few friends swore they were mottled by looking at them as chicks. Now they are a gorgeous solid blue.
Well...I'm trying to be very good and only hatch out my ducks right now since I have a list of people wanting them. However, I see a bunch of cockerels in my brooder right now so I am very tempted to stick some more eggs in right now. *sigh* So I should have eggs for sale from the cochins through the Summer...though May-June I don't think I'll be doing much selling or marketing them.
BTW, I forgot to say, looks like a blue to me, but I'm bad at this. *sigh*
Congrats and cute chick!!
Here is a pic of one of my blue mottled gals when she hatched. There is alot more yellow.
Yours looks like a good blue. Both the bl and blk can have that penguiney thing going on.
klf73-oh come on in the waters warm!!..gotta get these for your kids!
Thanks everyone for the help! I now have FOUR babies! Surprisingly TWO more hatched out that I didn't expect
*HUGE SMILE* They ALL look the same LOL I would LOVE all blue babies that's for sure. Would have loved a splash but I can get one of those later
Now I hope to get two girls out of the crew and I will be good. I'm thinking about keeping a male if I end up with a blue one. OH these babies are SSOOOO cute! Thanks a bunch Asher. May want more from you next year if your still selling at that time. These babies are strong
