    So I hatched out some chicks from my Easter egger rooster and an assortment of hens.
    One hen is particular lays a pretty olive egg.
    I hatched 4 of her eggs all came out pretty little black chicks.
    The weird thing is out of my 30 chicks I hatched only 3 have died and it has been 3 of the 4 black chicks from my olive egg chicken.
    Could it be the breed or just coincidence.
    There are some cinnamon queen chicks and eater egger chicks in the pic.

    Most likely it's just coincidence. You would need to do several hatches to be certain it was genetic or not.
