    Hi everyone. I obtained some black coppers from a friend. We got 5 roos and 1 hen. Had them for little over a month before the hen started laying again (think the move and watching her fellow hens attacked by racoons rattled her cage so to speak). In any event, about a month AFTER she started laying, I threw one of her eggs in the bator. The hatchling does not look like a black copper to me! Anyone have any ideas?
