    They are a pale yellow. I thought if I put them on a dark background the color might come out better.

    How cute. What's with the coloration on top of their heads.
    Now I am excited. I have 10 pullets and a roo (Delawares) on order. Can't wait to get them.

    Shortly after they hatched and got fluffy, I took magic markers and put dots on their heads so I could tell them apart.

    I ordered 6 eggs from EBay and they sent 8, I dropped one [​IMG], and 5 out of 7 hatched.[​IMG]

    I'd love to see pictures of y'all's Delawares.

    When will I be able to know who's a boy and who's a girl?
