Hi everyon I have a black Silkie hen and a black Silkie rooster. One of my Wheaten Marans hens went broody so I decided to let her hatch some of the Silkie eggs. I now have 6 adorable Silkie chicks. Heres the catch... I have no idea what color they are. Three are black but two look like brown chipmunks with strips down their back and one is a really cool grey color. I also have blue, buff and white Silkie chicks that I bought from a breeder in the same brooder. The grey chick is not white or blue and I have no idea what to call the brown chipmunk chicks. I guess I just assumed crossing a black hen on a black roo would get me all black chicks. Any ideas what these guys will turn out to be? Thanks! I might be able to post pictures of the chicks if needed.
