This might be a silly question, but I'm wondering if anyone can give me a guess as to what color these chicks will be. Same rooster for all, a Lavender Ameracana and I'm told the hens were Red Comets (I hatched them for my brother-in-law). The little guy was almost a week later than the others.

I ran it through the color calculator, and it looks like either pretty solid white or solid black for both sexes, not sex linked.

The yellows will be predominately white with the black chick black.

Red Comets are considered to be a white based bird with red trim (although there is a lot of red in them...genetically they have some white base from the silver roo in the background), so when they breed for the next generation, a lot of white comes out....

...anyway, that's my understanding
