I hatched these two little beauties yesterday. I think these are the pretties chicks! These are Norwegian Jaerhon chicks. These are the only true Norwegian breed. The originated from a Norwegian landrace type of chicken. The national control station for breeding was established in Jaeren in 1916. It is said that the breed originated from one single pair of parents, however they have good vitality are are doing fairly well as a breed today. Roosters and hens look quite different as the hens have a set pattern to them but the roos look like a mixed barred chicken. I have read that you can sex the day old chicks by their color. Since mine look the same I take it they are either roos or hens but I don't know which one. These will not be meat birds here (unless they turn out to be roos and I can't get any hens for them) but will go into the layer flock.
