    They're so cute! Here's what you have to look forward to. These Javas are 4 weeks old. They grow up so fast, but are so curious about their surroundings. I'm really enjoying them, as I'm sure you will, too! As you can see, any yellow is quickly being replaced with black.

    Quote:I think they'll end up black. The new feathers coming through are all black. There's still a touch of light coloring in the wing tips, so we'll wait and see. The breeder I got them from has both mottled and black. Could end up being a mix of both.

    I just love Javas. Here is a pic of "Koura" . I only ended up with two pullets, but I sure do like her. Out of 10 there were 4 pullets and 6 roos. I am keeping the smallest pullet ( not for breeding)just cause she is so darn cute and some how always comes out on top. The next one up got sold with one of the extra roos. The remaining 2 girls will make up my trio along with which boy. It is down to three . # 1 . He is huge, doesn't start a fight, but finishes it, is sweet as pie to me and the girls, big body, big bone, black legs w/ yellow soles. I have seen a few white tips on his feathers. But as they say " you can't eat color". # 2 Is also big, but something about his head is not quite as attractive. His coloring is really black, but I see a little bit of purple. I have to look again to see if there is any white. His eyes are a little lighter. I also have seen him be a little bit of a bully. He is well mannered to me, but he is more of a fighter than bird # 1. Maybe you guys could help me, I will get some picture posted of the boys.
