I'm not sure about the coloring question but I made a burrow for mine (out of the shipping vial it came in) and I haven't seen it since...so in my case I would say yes, they do burrow.

I use to have 4, 2 female and 2 males. They were subadults and yes if given the oppurtunity they will burrow. I never had slings or any little blue ones, but my guess would be around the 2" maybe 3" stage?

I've got a blue sling at 1 1/2 inches and it burrows almost as much as my Haplopelmas do. I never get to see it.

Not only is minds burrowing it has actually closed off the opening to its burrow to either be left alone or due to molting conditions

Mine lost it about 1.5 inches. It still have purple/blue sheens, but mostly brown. And yes, mine burrows. On my photo page there is a video of mine eating. You can see her legs come out and grab the roach.
