    I'll bust out the camera soon, BUT
    I have 5 or so black hens - which are any of the following.. not 100% sure - black stars/possibe australorp/ameraucana/neat black chickens

    and my only rooster that does his job is tan, with a brown section that looks like a saddle.
    Anyway

    out of all 8 eggs - one hatched out black with a yellow underside from chin all the way back, yellow feather tips, and what looks kinda likeyellow eyelashes, like right above the eye are yellow tufts! REALLY NEAT!
    Also got one thats yellow, with like a black stripe down the whole thing!

    I'll post pics once their into the brooder! SO CUTE!

    oh, and one of the so far 4 yellow ones... only appears to have a right eye![​IMG]

    Congrats on your babies [​IMG] . I have a chicken with only one eye. It doesn't bother her a bit. She keeps up with the best of them.

    I would use a warm wet wash cloth and then make sure that it stays warm and doesn't get chilled.. You can trim some of the feathers/fluff if that helps also..

    Good luck!
