    F2EFBF01-0F28-444E-8C50-0A4FC825AC02.jpeg Hello all! I’m new here. Thanks to all the advice on incubator brands I made my purchase. Then again looked up advice on temp/humidity. Had a successful hatch this weekend. 92% hatch rate. For my first time I was pleased. My question is this: I’ve got a beauty New Hampshire rooster, with a mixture of cherry egger and Red sex link hens. Some of my chicks are black.Any idea why? Will they turn red as they age? Thank you all in advance!

    Gqf 1502. Hardest thing was deciding humidity level. Seems everyone has an opinion!
