I had an EE roo that crossed with my hens - 2 EE, an black australorp, a golden comet and a barred rock. Two chicks are EE colored, one is barred, and the other 3 are black. How did this happen?? The three black chicks all look just like the australorp. If any are hens, what color are the eggs likely to be? I'm going to try to post pics to get opinions on gender...is it too early to tell? They are about 8 weeks old.
