I have some chicks I hatched out of some eggs given to us. The hens that laid the eggs are black australorps and the roo was eaten by a dog. They told us the roo was gray. We live in Maine so it would most likely be a hardy breed. I will post a couple of pics after I swipe dh's card from his camera. I was just wondering what breeds are large, gray, and hardy? Thanks for ANY ideas Krista If it matters out of the 9 chicks we have, there are 6 black and 3 gray. All of the chickens have pink bottoms of their feet.
