    They have blue feathers, but they have white feathers mixed into their feet & wing feathers.

    Here are some pics

    black, most black colored chicks have white on them till final/adult feathering, blue would be more gray

    Quote:It is possible that they would be solid black when they get older. I just think they are mottled because of all the white on the chest. I have had some black chicks with white on the feet feathers that turns to solid black as adults, but never had any with that much white on the chest.

    langshan chicks are a good example of more white than black as chicks, and you get a soild black bird as on adult
