    I have solid black baby shubinkins in my pond. Will they change color?

    I don't think so. What makes you think it will change colors ?

    I have not seen solid colored shubunkins and just thought maybe this was a phase and that they would possibly get adult colors after awhile. I am new to pond fish. I didn't even know they spawned until I noticed baby goldfish.

    I can't speak specifically about shubunkins but all of the goldfish I raise start out as black-charcoal-olive green colors and stay that color until they are about 1-2 inches long. Even as 4-5 inch fish I've had them turn from orange to white or vice versa or solid to patterned.
