    Yeah, I don't really notice it until the sun hits it. It is really cool, at first I thought they had something spilled on them, but it's definately just the feather color. Wow purple, now that would be cool!

    I think that her babies are crossed with another black chicken I have. I have no idea what he is, but he shines green and purple in the sun and is jet black all over...legs wattles the whole bit. I sure would like a whole flock like him! Terri O
