    We are having a fun debate. We got this little one, and he doesn't look like anything we've gotten before:

    The chick on the left should be a Cream Light Brown, the chick on the right is what we are debating. It does not look like the Blue Cream Light Browns we raised last year. The parents are Blue Light Brown Roo x Cream Light Brown Hen.

    I should add that so far there is no brown on this chick yet. The down looks a little dark in these photos, but it is creamy yellow not brown.

    I don't know where we would have picked up Dun.

    I have one that looks like that. I got it at TSC in their asst bantam bin. Mine is a little more yellowish where yours is buff. Seems to be feathering in blue. I have been wondering what color it is.

    If it was dun wouldn't it have shown in the parents?

    The Blue is coming from only from the Roo too, so splash is out. As far as I know the breeder we got them from just LB, CLB, BLB, and CBLB.

    So let's say it's Silver, maybe e+ Silver Blue?

    Would dun show on brown light blue, or would it blend into the brown?

    Pics of the parents could help.
    Dun and blue are easily mistaken.
    Dun plus blue could be blueish.

    The blue light browns I bred were almost the same as plain light brown chicks.
