My wife ordered me 6 black tailed white Japanese bantam eggs that were supposed to be from show stock. The eggs were ruined in shipping. The breeder contacted us asking if any eggs had hatched. My wife explained what had happened. Then, surprise, a dozen eggs were delivered at no cost. Five of these eggs have hatred and four healthy chicks are now a week old.
My question-Two of the chicks have black wing and tail feathers coming in. The other two have white wing and tail feathers coming in. All the chicks are supposed to be black tailed but…? Am I right in thinking these two are not black tail and are another variety?
I think my wife misunderstood the breeders e-mail and that he sent a variety of Japanese eggs. Either way I am happy getting the four nice chicks.
