black & white

......in color. Garfield Farm Museum is home to a flock of rare Java chickens. They were tested and found to be possibly purebred, one of the rare breeds. About 6 years ago a white Java chick was hatched, white Javas being a variation on the black. The last white Java was seen sometime in the 1950's, so this was an exciting development for the farm. They enlisted the help of the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, which incubates and hatches eggs for them, allowing the flock to grow faster.
