    Can you get some different shots of him? I think I see dark splotches all over or it's just some shadows.

    Thank you for such quick replies! This roo was in with a black silkie hen and this hatched two weeks ago.
    I cannot wait to see this little one as it developes. I like the color but it only has 4 toes.
