    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.

    :welcome!

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