    we have one chick that doesn't look like any of the others... I will post pics once it gets fluffy, but it is a fairly uniform gray, unlike the others, which are either black(with white bellies), dark brown(with white bellies) or look like they will be barred... its parents are a BRxBO roo and a black giant hen, so I wasn't expecting one to come out like this...

    And it will change a lot as it grows.

    thanks... our little guy isn't that light, but it is defiantly something different than any of its hatchmates... here is a shot, with it next to some of the others( little guy is still a bit sticky, but nothing is drying fast in the humidity we have had so far this week)...

    he should be dried out by tonight, when I get home from work... will post another pic of it then...
