I have been hatching out some and half the chicks are black and look like black australorps when born and feather out solid black. The other half look like reds with some of them having some white in them. The black chicks are a suprise to me. Maybe some one with some genetic background could help. The rooster of these chicks is a heritage RIR and the hens are supposed to be cinnamon queen(new hampshire x silver laced wyandotte).

Here is a picture of one black chickens that hatched out from RIR x red sexlink cross. Around 30-40% hatch out this way. Does anyone know why?
