...post pics at various intervals. Those are some very interesting looking Australorps.
Will do. The parents are Blue Australorps so one chick (#2) is all black, two are more of a charcoal colour (#1 + another chick, not pictured). Those colours didn't surprise me given the parents. "Blondy" (chick #3 above), however, is more of a light grey colour - (s)he's the odd one out & I'm interested in seeing what (s)he looks like.

We hatched out eggs I got from someone locally. I saw the parents but there was also a more traditional-looking hen in there as well (RIR colouring) so who knows whether or not chick #3 was actually one of that hen's eggs.

Either way... will update pics periodically. ;)

SJMike, I love the colors, and they're looking really good. Nice shape to them for their age, from what I can see. I too am very hands on with my Australorps. It pays off in the long run.
