SO I have 4 BCM hens with 2 ameraucana roosters over them. I allowed eggs to be hatched and 2 made it. The chicks however look barred like a barred rock. But upon closer inspection the black in the barring is actually a green sheen. Not just black. How could this have happened?? I do not know what I expected but not barred looking chicks. My roosters are both different but no barring. One is white with black green tail feathers and some nice greenish feathers around his neck. The other is a reddish mahogany with black green tail feathers. So is this possible or did another roo fly over into their pen? Any help would be appreciated.
