    i got my babies a few weeks ago and one of them is a white crested blue polish, but all of the chick pics i find show a dark streak down the back. mine is almost entirely white/silver..... no dark markings.. has anyone else had that experience too? shes very cute, i was just curious about the markings... shes the one in the front. im still new to posting pics here so its sideways...sorry for any cramped necks [​IMG]

    Could it be a splash? I have some splash, and once in a while they will turn out pure white, but most of them have bluish-blackish splotches on them.

    She doesn't look like a blue anything to me... at least, she doesn't look a thing like any of MY blue polish when they were chicks. Definitely looks white. If she had any black or dark splashes on her (even 1 feather) she'd look an awful lot like my white splash.

    The blue is a diluting gene for black, so not all chicks hatched as "blue" will actually be blue. Some will be black, some will be splash, about half will be blue. I ordered 2 WC blue with my chicks and got one black and one splash. Tho she doesn't have much splashing on her right now; she's mostly white. And the black is a roo, but he's still darned handsome!

    Blue in Polish works the same as anything else, you can get blue, black or splash. She looks splash to me.
