    Here are some chicks that I hatched from some eggs I bought off of Julie(bamachicken). These are from the mottled project Julie is currently working on. I had four hatch and have no idea if you can tell if they will be mottled or not. They look like penguins and one is way bigger than all the rest for some reason and is my favorite. Everyone enjoy.

    They are so cute. I see the one with the mottled beak. That one may your greatest chance of mottling. The others may just feather out black. They may feather out black and then get some white at about 2 months so let me know what happens. Just remember it is a project in early stages.
    BTW, did you see the pics i posted yesterday of my chicks hatched from the mottled Cochin/Orp cross. They are adorable. i ACcidentaly put it in the Incubation and Hatching section
