    I just bought four of these little wonders (2 black and 2 partridge) and would love to see pictures and have some clue about what to look for to start determining the sex of these four.

    Also, I'd love to breed these chickens and make the fertile eggs and chicks available to folks in WA since they're so hard to find. Do you think it's a bad idea to breed hatch-mates, if you have no idea if they are full sibs?

    Thanks!

    Anyone? Is this breed more rare than I thought or is everybody at work and actually working? (Unlike me!)

    Yes - they are RARE - I am looking for black for hubby and can't find any. [​IMG]

    I got my two little black ones from this hatchery:

    I don't see them listed there right now, but I just got them this week, so I would at least check.

    Good luck!
