    This chick just hatched during the night. It came from a barnyard mix I picked up from someone in my area, with a BCM Roo over a bunch of breeds. This little chick has feathers on the feet, but the feet aren't black, so I was curious if anyone has an idea what the mutt might be?

    Sorry for kinda blurry 'bator shots, not quite ready to move this one out yet!

    Did it come from a dark egg like the one in photo?

    No, that was the only dark egg in the bunch. This one hatched from a standard light brown/tan egg.

    Here's an earlier picture before I took the shell out--you can kind of see in there in the back

    I think you have an Australorp.
