    I bought eggs from an E-bay breeder. They were supposedly seperated by color and she had the color written on the egg. Some of these I'm planning on selling and I just wanted to see what you all think of the colors.


    Here's a group shot. You can see the ones I'm wondering about and a top view of colors...

    Here's one that was in a "blue" egg...it's not white, but not "blue" either..

    Another shot...

    Now these too...I'm confused. One is supposed to be partridge and the other is supposed to be buff....

    The partridge has chipmunk stripes and that's how the BLRW's start out, too, with stripes.

    The lighter color out of blue is a Splash. It will get the splashes of color as it starts to feather in. The lighter color one could be partridge but if it had buff written on it it is just a buff that will probably have a lot dark feathers. Looks like some nice blues too. ARe the blacks silkies too.

    looks like you got a bunch of lavenders, one white, some blacks, maybe a buff(but the chipmunk pattern is confusing?) and maybe some blues. But I can tell that you got lots of lavenders. [​IMG] cute babies! [​IMG]
