    Can anyone show me some at different ages?

    Also are there any people here who have a LOT of experience with them so I can ask some questions?

    Is it possible for a delaware chick to not have any spots, and then get some, but only a few?

    Thanks in advance

    Anyone?

    I think they are mostly roosters too. [​IMG]

    Here's a pic of my spotted chicks. At first I thought they were dirt spots. They are not really white either, more of a cream color.

    Yep, sexlink cockerels. Delawares have black barring in the hackles and tail feathers.
