    Hello!
    I purchased a few Black Copper Maran eggs in which I hatched four chicks. Anyway, 2 of the chicks have feathers on their legs and 2 do not also two are black and white and two are a greyish color.
    Can someone tell me what they think might be the difference?
    I know it might be hard without pics but my camera is down. Thanks!!

    Sounds like black, blue and splash. A blue marans mated to a blue marans will give black, blue and splash chicks.

    Different breeds, but........
