I have what is supposed to be an 8-week old Delaware. It is brown with a bit of straw coloring and black tips. I hatched the egg from an ebay purchase. I can only find pics of new chicks and older chickens. The breeder (when questioned by me) told me the chick is supposed to be brown at this stage. I'm leary of this as I've read comments from Delaware owners that they should not have any brown on them (whether this applies to full grown chickens and not 8-week old chicks I don't know). Your answer will decide for me whether I take the breeder up on his offer to send me free eggs for the shipping costs. Thank you for any help you an give me.
