    Hi i was wondering if anybody rasies black wyandottes and has had trouble hatching chicks this year. I raise pure black wyandottes and for some reason this year i have got chicks that have grown up and have black and white feathers. None of the chickens cross breed. I dont know where this white is coming from.

    Can someone give me advice?

    Thanks

    Hi, I removed your duplicate just so you know.

    As for the color, I am no expert, but from what I hear, the colors black and white have a tendency to hide other colors. So from your offspring, you'll have to pick and choose as they can have recessive genes with other colors. It is also possible, that as chicks, they have white feathers and will grow out of them.

    WELCOME!
