    The birds are silver, wheaten, columbian and dark brown. I have produced birds like the one in the picture.

    Interesting. I wonder if the Sptizhauben chick I hatched that has almost no black on it will end up looking like that?

    He will be a week old on Saturday. I will take more pics then. The ones that have come in so far are white. He also doesn't have much of a 'poof' starting on his head like the other one does.

    I got him from "seramaland2" in Bethel, Ohio. Here are some updated pictures. These two were born approximately 12-14 hours apart, and at this point there is a considerable size difference. Also, the mostly-yellow guy still has no little top-knot forming at all. I'm starting to think it's not a Spitz! [​IMG]

    I think this picture is funny - it makes the normal-colored girl look GIANT!
