    SILVER JAVA CHICKENS

    October 16, 2007

    These birds came out of a Black Java Hen's brown egg:

    I was surprised when these two developed but when the hen had a pea comb I knew my Black Java Rooster bred my Blue Ameraucana hen (who's father was a Silver Ameraucana ) and their daughter to a Black Java Rooster produced 25% silver.
    These birds came out of a brown Java egg which is what threw me until the pea comb.

    well I didn't create them....but they were hatched out of a pen that had an auburn, a black and a white rooster and mostly either black hens or some black with a golden lacing?

    The hen and the roo were both given to me so I am just seeing what I can do with them.
