    OK here is a description since they are almost a week old:

    They hatched from a light brown and dark brown medium size eggs. It's hatch mates are all Buff Orpington.
    *Head-
    --Black with chestnut brown "uni-brow".
    ---Cheeks are also chestnut brown
    ----Beak is a bi color of black and beige
    -----Combs are yellow
    *Body-
    --Whole body is about 85% black
    ---Butt is grey
    ----Underbelly is white
    -----Legs and feet are black with some spots of beige
    ------Wing feathers are starting to develop a black and gold speckle. Under the wing the fluff was a darker grey.

    If anyone has any ideas post em!

    I'm going to be getting a new camera here in a few days. It is coming the the mail.

    I was thinking this bird is a cross. I started to think that it was a Black Australorp cross.

    If I left out any information please let me know so I can correct it!

    Thank you!

    Did they come from a hatchery? If you tell us which one, that will help us narrow down some choices based on what they carry.
