    Today the wheaten marans eggs were officially 4 days late. I did the float test and had nothing so I cracked them open. I had two black chicks, 2 silvery looking chicks and one yellow. All had quit about 2 and a half weeks in I judged. My question...since I have not hatched this breed before, what color should they have been? I can see two different but 3? Can someone please enlighten me? I cant seem to find any pics of wheatens except for yellow! What did I have? Got these eggs from a friend and the shipper had marked them WH MAR---supposedly good lines too! Thanks--Terri O
