    Out of all the chicks we've hatched over the past few months, we have never had a chick with this color. It looks bluish/grey in real. Would it be considered blue splash type? All our chicks have the same moms( special hatchery breed with buff orp in them as well as whatever they are mixed with) and they all have the same father, a barred rock. Any ideas?

    I sure hope this little one will be a rooster as I'd love to have one this color!! [​IMG]

    I think it would be black and white striped with some orange/buff in it.

    It should be barred with a bit of buff.
