    Will the chick coloration of the fuzz be the same as the adult feathers? I have 20 pumpkin hulsey chick 1/4 of them have varying degrees of black on the fuzz. Should I wait for adult feathers before giving those away?

    I have no idea!! Just wanted to mention if you don't get any answers here you might try posting your question in the "breeds, genetics, showing" forum. Good luck.

    Quote:I think it will be very different. You should wait to see them feathered out. My black australorps have a lot of white down on them, I know that they will become all black. I don't see any of the barring on the dominiques yet, and the light brahmas are just varying shades of grey.

    Wait for them to feather out.
