    Hi!
    We recently bought this 5 acre place in north central Florida, and decided to have some chicken and guineas. A nearby chicken farmer had some Javas and we decided to try this heritage breed. Now we are the proud 'parents' of 4 3-day olds and 4 3 week olds. Will be looking forward to seeing how many turn out to be hens. Also, 7 guinea keets. Should be a lot of fun.

    Actually there are three colors of Java, that I know of. The Museum of Science and Industry hatches them year round, courtesy of a breeder, who then takes them back and gives them new eggs for the exhibit. It's my favorite exhibit and the first place I head for.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens, hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
