I had purchased 20 Australorp and 4 Silkie eggs from Cammy and now have 12 healthy lil babies. There are 2 more that are trying to make it...but haven't completely hatched yet - I don't have much hope for them as the weak/late hatchers never seem to do very well... 7 were scrambled in shipping, and 3 didn't make it the full term. Right now I'm looking at a certain 50% hatch rate. Not the greatest, but the babies that I do have are very healthy and adorable. I have 10 Australorps and 2 Blue Silkies. It seems there are slight color variations within the Australorps. These are my first Australorp chicks so I'm not sure what to expect color wise...I thought all Australorps were all black so I'm not sure what the color variations mean. If anyone could enlighten me, I would certainly appreciate it! Here are some picts.
