    Can any post pics or describe what black orpington chicks will look like?

    I was supposed to have a bunch in the bator, when they hatched they are black and white.

    They look like little penguins black and white and don't get fully black until around 6-7 wks. Eventually the black has a shiny green look to it. [​IMG]
