    There's definitely some buff coloring there, but I also see a lot of white. Could be staining from hatch. Is this a mixed chick? Or did it come from color separated pens?

    Could be white, but the buff coloring is throwing us off.
    Is it possible the buff coloring is just staining from the egg?
    It'll be interesting to see what it looks like in a few weeks.
