Hello everyone. My wife and I are new to the chicken world and started right off with a friend wanting to give us her 11 Black Copper Marans Roos and Hens. That meant I had to build a chicken coop but oh well. That was fun too. By the time I got the coop built apparently racoons got to all but one hen. SO...we ended up with 5 roos and 1 hen ! We ordered some eggs and got two to hatch. They look like what I've seen online for BCM chicks. Blackish with whiter underbelly and feathers on their legs. In the mean time...our Hen laid a couple eggs and one just hatched. Now this little critter has the coloring of Chip and Dale chipmunks! All our roos are BCM and we have all of them for almost 5 weeks before she started laying. Is there variation that would still be a BCM or is this a genetic throw back?
