Well, here they are at 10 weeks. I was very lucky and got a male and a female. I named them Slick and Kiwi.

This is such a wonderful friendly breed that I had to have more so here is my batch for 2011.

I bought 2 lemon blue, 2 red pyle and one brown/black. The hatchery sent me two extras. One is a blue and one is a white chick so maybe a splash.

Havenese are excellent with chickens and are raised in Cuba as
chicken herding dogs.
