    I wasn't 100% that this is the right forum to put this,so my apologies if it isn't. I have 2 Silver Spangled Hamburg chicks that at first I didn't have doubts as to their breed as chicks cause they looked normal for their breed. But at the moment at 4 weeks old they appear more black than white without the spangling. Which, from pictures I've seen online,seems kinda odd since I was expecting white birds with black spangles!So I was wondering,if this is maybe normal for this breed to be late with their correct coloring? iphone pics 121.JPG iphone pics 124.JPG

    Normal for young Hatchery quality (meaning they aren’t bred to the SOP) birds. :)
