Blue Hubbard Variant

For the first time in my life, I decided to try a garden this year. It's going fairly well and I hope someone can help identify the squash variant showing up on my blue hubbard vines. I started them from seeds saved from a store-bought blue hubbard last fall.

This, as expected ... a blue hubbard

I've also got 4 of these growing ???

Thanks for any help.

if you got the seed from a squash grown in an unknown place, they could be anything (including NEW things) hybridized between the parent hubbard plant and some other fairly closely-related squash. a lot of market farmers don't isolate squash enough to keep the seeds true.
