    Suddenly noticed that this blue Orpington has a perfect black dot on its head-never saw that before. I asked my DH if he marked one for some reason, LOL. Nope, its in the fuzz. Too bad a dot on the head isn't a sexlinked trait with Orpingtons!

    Very cute, love the black dot. I had one I hatched form Julies eggs that had a black /blue dot too.

    [​IMG]Maybe it is a religious chick??? Though it is kind of late for Ash Wednesday... or if it is an East Indian pullet, it is a bindi, symbol of Hinduism.

    oh, they are so cute. It will be interesting to see how the one with the black dot turns out.
