I have 7 chicks hatched from the following color eggs:
green
blue
tan
copper
medium brown
white


The blue/green are EEs, but the rest are all different breeds, including Maran and Polish.

I figured the Maran would make a black chick, but to have SIX black chicks and 1 grey??? Where is the yellow and brown chick?? The eggs are not all from the same farm, even.

Well I dont have a clue most Polish eggs are white.. Depends on the parents to the color. The Polish usually have a bump on thier head... That is all I have experence for..

the tan could also be an EE which could give you a black chick. Of my 4 EE's 2 were black, one was grey (she is white now) and one was brown w/black & white stripes and now she is black and white with a white head, she looks like an eagle. They are all my sweetest girls. My EE's lay blue, green and lite tan eggs.

All the other eggs?... I don't have a clue.

Nothing is "pue bred" and i don't mind at all what they all or look like. I was just really surprised to get a dozen different eggs, from different breeds and different farms and yet they all came out black chicks. Just thought that was odd...
