    I dont know if its right place to post this.
    So i have one black hen and a buff(i dont know if its a buff but it looks orange) they breed, had fertile eggs,the hen git broody and is now incubating her own eggs. My question is what posibly be the colour of chicks..i know its all a gess game..but i read somewhere thatblack colour is dominant so does that says that most of her chicks will me black or any other colours with black colour in dominance...??
    I have 10 healthy growing eggs all piped.
    So as a guess game how many u think will have black chicks..?

    All advice and guess are appreciated

    Do you mean the buff is the rooster? If so, the chicks will likely be black and when they grow they may be black with some buff leakage. But a lot depends on the particular genetics of your birds so there are no guarantees.

    Majority will be black but it also depends on the parentage of the rooster and hen you're breeding with. I'd be interested in seeing the chicks when they hatch, please update :)
