I have 4 day old chicks. I have 9 black copper marans, one black chick that looks like a black copper maran but has white detail on its face and white wing tips, and I also have a light colored chick that hatched from a very dark brown egg. The rooster is a sweet Black Copper Maran. The hens are buff orpington, (we didn't hatch any light colored eggs) black copper maran, and we have one wheaten hen and one lavender buff. I am thinking the light yellow chick is a wheaten since it hatched from a dark brown egg. The black chick with white detail I am thinking is a BCM/lavender cross? We were expecting all BCM since the eggs were so dark and we have a lot of BCM hens. Any help or pictures are appreciated.
