Well, if they were a TRUE bay and red (chestnut/sorrel) pair, then the only possible colors would be bay or red. I'm guessing the parents were misclassified if the foal was some far-out color. It's possible that the foal appeared black at birth but will later lighten to bay or brown. Now, if the chestnut was actually a red dun, that opens up the possibilities to dun or red dun. Pictures of parents?

Do you have a picture of this foal?

A picture would give the answer away silly. We'll see the pic after someone gives the right answer.

I will say black silver. (Or possibly bay silver).

You will not get a single dilute(buckskin or palomino) or a grey foal as neither sire or dam is a dilute or grey, their may be dilute's and grey's in the bloodlines but unless one parent is a dilute or grey you will get neither.
Your colour chances are chestnut, bay/brown and black which is less likely. If you got a colour other than these, obviously another stallion got to the mare

A foal born black with a grey overtone will usually shed their foal coat and become a lot darker or true black, a chestnut foal born looking like a red dun if neither parent is dun the foal will shed out darker.
