    End of a dirt road...
    I just hatched some chicks on Monday. I had 5 eggs from the guy that I bought my incubator from as well as a bunch of my own mutts. 3 were sumatras, 1 hamburg and one "game", thats all the info I got from him. Now if this little guy is a sumatra he looks nothing like the others. He looks much better in the pic than he does in person...he is black as black can be...only noticed the little bit of rusty color on his face when I took the photo. Also, very small chick, he's about half the size of the others but he sure is feisty!

    Any ideas?
