    I got 5 BR chicks at 5 days old. One was black, the other looked like the BRs usually do. The chicks are now 6 weeks and that one is still solid black, with what looks loke red under his feathers. Is this normal? This one is also bigger than the others.

    Sounds to me like you got a BR cross or a black sex link.
