    This is a silver w/partridge stripes.

    This is white with partridge strips and a black dot.

    I've never had chicks that looked like this. They're really cute though!

    I think they will end up being gray.

    I've hatched out a lot of splash chicks and have never had one with stripes. Can't wait to see these grow up. They better not die!

    The first one will be a Gray, the second a Calico (basically some partridge pattern in a more buff color with darker patches throughout.

    What do they look like as adults? Do you have any pictures? I just hatched out some chicks that look exactly like that!

    Thanks!

    I have 1 day old chick that looks identical to the bottom one. Does any one have pics of theirs as adults. I would love to see what he/she will look like. Thanks!
