When you say 'Orange' beak was it more a 'Bone' colour? If it was/ is then it could be a White/Pied. If it was true yellow then it could be a member of the Yellow Beak variety.

Your other chick (if that is the one in the photo) looks to be a Grey or Black Cheeked mutation.

Hope that someone else helps out here.

At a first look I would say that it is a White. The beak usually change to the Orange/Red when they get older.

If it is a White then both parents are carrying the Pied/White gene which is recessive and requires two to make a visual one. (hope that makes sense)

Sorry, just noticed that the parent cock is a visual White so the hen is carrying the gene.
