New Chicks

So I feel like I waited forever for these eggs to hatch.

Then once it started it was like an avalanche. They popped out like firecrackers.


and adorable

These are a cross between my Silver Penciled Rock roosters and Black Australorp hens. They look the way hens did when they were chicks, mostly black with some yellow. The SPRs were brown as chicks. Maybe these will grow up to be black like their beautiful mothers.


  1. I LOVE them!! I am Uncle Bill

  2. Black *is* beautiful.
    Congrats papa...I'm glad they finally hatched.
