    These were sent to me as Black Java eggs. I ordered them from Superior Farms. Out of the 12 I incubated these two hatched Easter morning. Better than I had expected. I didn't think any would.

    After looking around the net at pictures of Black Java and Mottled Java I think these are Mottled and not Black...

    Descriptions of the Black Java describe them as being mostly black with black legs and yellow toe pads.

    Any one here raising either or both of these. Any pictures you might want to share.

    This picture is when they are about 4 days old.

    Thanks for any information you may have.

    They look very similar to my mottled javas when they were chicks.
