One of our black Australorps, aptly named Moody, went broody for the 3rd time. She is 3 yrs and our flock sadly was down-sized by a sudden, unexplained death in March and a dog attack in April. Anyhoo, instead of breaking her AGAIN, we decided to get her some fertile eggs once we determined she was fully committed. We decided to purchase sex-linked, standard sized Chocolate Orpingtons, so that we could determine hens from roos right off the bat. Moody has been on the eggs since 5/24 and so far so good, candled last week and all 10 are definitely cooking up nicely. I can't find any pix online of the standard size Chocolate Orp chicks. Per My Pet Chicken, "hens will be chocolate, while roosters will be black/split". Sounds simple enough, but is it really? What is black/split??? Anyone hatch out standard size Chocolate Orps and can tell me if it is easy to differentiate the hens from the roos? Pix of chicks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
