So my broody just hatched 5/8. They were from different hens, black australorp, barred rock and some production reds. The roo is a barred rock. I knew that the barred gene would be in the chicks, but I was expecting some red chicks. Will one always get black and white chicks from a barred roo. The chicks are all black, with spots on head (barred) and varring degrees of white on the tips of wings and underbelly. Is it possible for some of them to turn white? I did have some hatched out earlier from same hens with a silver laced over the hens, hatched as chipmunk chicks and they turned out white with some black markings like columbian wyandottes. So question is... will there maybe be some that turn red and barred as they mature? Any guesses?
