    I hatched 4 black copper marans 5 week ago that are all gray. is this normal? I got them from a local grower. Shouldn't they be black? One of them had a white chest that is turning gray the others had no white on them.

    That doesn't sound like they are black copper marans. Maybe blue copper, but blues shouldn't have white. Can you post pictures?
