I just had a chick hatch and it wasn't what I was expecting. I thought it was a cross between a purebred Blue or Black Ameraucana Roo and a brown layer. I am not sure exactly who the mother is but they are all brown or black hens that lay brown eggs. The egg it hatched from was very dark and I would guess it was from a maran or wellsummer hen. It is one of my darker eggs. There were two more eggs that were of a very similar size and color that I assumed were from the same hen. The one that I am wondering about seems to be a completely classic yellow chick with no markings and pink legs. The other two from what looked like the same egg/mother are still wet but black/grey in color with slate legs. Did one off my baby 4 month old roos get in there? I have some salmon favorelles and a blue laced red , but they are still very much babies...Could the Ameraucana cross with a brown feathered/brown layer make a yellow/pink chick?
