    I hatched out my eggs, (7 out of 7 [​IMG]) the dad is a barred rock, and the moms are australorps and barred rocks. The last two hatched out yesterday. Do you see something strange in this picture?

    Aren't genetic's bizzare?? I wonder if a color can sprout up from some distant relative.. Like a grandmother or something. They are adorable regardless!!
