Has anyone ordered Whiting True Greens before and taken a picture of their chicks? I know the True Blues are multi-colored, but the description of the True Greens is more consistent: "reddish to chestnut colored and on the light side." I'm wondering if the chicks are more uniformly colored than the True Blues?

Survived our first winter in Montana. Girls did well even when it got to -22.
This is the first time I've seen Whiting True Green for sale. They weren't available last year. No one would have experience with them.

The True Greens are the yellow ones with some faint chestnust shadowing that looks like chipmunk on the back

PatriceS, good to know -- guess I'll have to rely on anyone with an order date earlier than mine! PhyliciaM, you wouldn't happen to have a pic would you? Did you get some this year?

I'll definitely be taking some photographs when I get my chicks next week, but I've got Andalusians, Cuckoo Marans, Whiting True Blues, and Brown Leghorns in addition to the Whiting True Greens. The chick ID game will be fun. :-)

Unless someone has some directly from Dr Whiting’s farm in Delta, there wont be anyone with and earlier order date that Jan 29 2018 because Dr Whiting just sent the parent flock to McMurray last year for 2018 sales.
However, I can tell you that I go to Whiting Farms periodically and know the breeds very well. I have had True Blues for over a year that I bought from him directly. The True Blues will be all types of feather colors including red. The True Greens will feather out red / chestnut red and some may have a creamy under coat feathering. If you have True Blues that look like they will be red once featherd, you can put a leg tag on them to keep them from getting mixed in with your True Greens who will also be red.
The photo McMurray has is a good example of what to expect your True Greens to look like as adults.

PhyliciaM: coloring about like this? I have two that look similar. The only other yellow ones are very thoroughly chipmunky. :-)

Thought I'd add some more pictures. I have two chicks that are very light with pale striping as in my previous post, and a couple that are darker, like the one on the left in the first photo below (I think the one on the right is probably a True Blue). My suspected True greens are now almost five week old in the two last photos.
