Skittles my special splash chick!
« on: March 26, 2015, 06:15:52 PM »
I have a splash chick (Skittles) and she kinda sticks out of the crowd. ;) she has alot of blue in her wings and they start out really light blue and go really dark towards the top. I was just wondering if anyone has ever seen what Skittles turns out to look like.

--Thanks

You may end up with a blue chick. I had one that I thought was a splash when it was hatched, but then it started turning. It first showed up on it's wings like that. I also had a splash named Skittles. Cool name for a splash. Keep us all updated with pictures as your chick grows up.

Skittles is one adorable chick. It'll be neat to see what he/she looks like all feathered in.  :)

I've talked to some other people at shows about Skittles coloring a couple said that she may be a splash with blue feathers and w/ white and black splashing.?

I'm pretty sure you have a blue chick. A splash chick would look white and blue. And black cannot be splash  :)

Yep! Looks like you've got yourself a little blue chick there. The black spots is probably a little ticking. I think that happens sometimes (a theory) when a person breeds a spotted splash to a blue or black. It's kind of like the spots come through onto the blue. That's just me guessing though. I'm really not sure why black ticking spots sometimes shows up on blues. Does this chick have a splash parent?

Skittles is growing up fast and I'm pretty sure it's a splash but I would still like to hear what you guys think.  :)

Hi Hannah,

I'm pretty sure it's a splash. Is this one of the chicks I sent to you? If so, can you tell me what number the toe punches are? Are they a hole or have they been split open?  :)

I think it looks splash too.  It also looks like you have a male.
