    Deerman - This is the first chick from the Charcoal White Eye (I named him Hades) I got from you. It hatched less then two hours when the pics were taken. I know it is his (egg) cause it came from his pen. I believe it is from the IB Split to Charcoal hen. If it was from the purple BS hen wouldn't the chick be yellow/white?

    Here are some new ones I took around midnight. I have no clue what color a baby charcoal looks like LMAO! His/her coloring isn't as brown looking as the other blue pied chicks, it's darker and with more greyish. Well here are the new pictures:

    It not charcoal color. A charcoal chick will be nearly all gray when it hatches out will look about like a opal chick. Charcoal color chicks are hard to get only one to ever 7 to 8 chicks will be charcoal color. The first year I raised charcoal I hatch 16 chicks only two were charcoal color and both turn out to be hens and gave them both away. Here a month old charcoal and charcoal blackshoulder chick.
