Gold Sex-Link chicks with black feathers?

I have some gold sex-links (pullets) that I got from Ideal. They are about 1 1/2 weeks old and quite a few of them are getting either black or dark grey wing feathers in. Is this normal? Will it change as they get older? The gold sex links from Ideal are supposed to be RIR and RIW crosses and from all the picures I've seen they are different shades of gold/red with white. Just making sure I got the right chickens!

Yep, I've the same thing going on. I thought I'd try a few of these and let them roam with my black Slink. I thought this strange. I also purchased, at the same time, a few red friz cochin and I got one that's not fizzing. I will be calling them in the next week or so to see what's going on.
