Hi BYC people,
I had three chicks hatch today under a broody hen, (1x Araucana and 1x Black Copper Marans and other unknown colour variation of a Maran) :D

I would like to know what he/she colour she is, she looks a welsummer. The cockerel
is a Wheaten Maran and the hen is a BC Maran.
This is her/him.

Thanks Olivia.

P.S I live in Australia that's why I write "colour" like that!

Your black copper could be recessive for wheaton. I think the bird may either be wheaton or a mix that's not a standard color.

Could it be a Golden Salmon Maran? Those chicks look exactly the same. Her feathers are starting to flourish too.

To be a golden salmon, both parents have to be golden salmon. the OP's bird has different color variety parents, so it likely won't be any standard color variety.
