    Hello everyone! Just got a couple new babies from our local feed store. This is a terrible photo but you can kind of see her markings. She has blue on the top of her head, 3 toes in front and one in the back. Not sure what she is, the woman at the store thought maybe she was a Dorking. What do you think?

    It may be a Black Australorp, or a mottled breed like Ancona.

    Not a Dorking, since they have five toes on each foot.

    Here is a much better photo. You can see the blue/green on the head. It doesn't look like my other Australorps did.

    ...and the green you are seeing is an artificial dye mark that is usually an indicator of roo by the hatchery...your feed store should know that.

    It doesnt look like dye. Ive had a couple friends look at it and they didnt think so either, but I am unexperienced at this so I dont know. I hope not!
