Ordered Speckled Sussex and this is what hatched. Any idea what they might be? I proudly hatched 11 out of 12 on my first try.
Mystery hatch, guesses welcomed...

Congratulations on your hatch! They are adorable!
These are older(dead) threads but "maybe" they are Coronation Sussex? Just a guess! Whatever they turn out to be...they are awfully cute!
They are so cute!
Yes, I do think they are BO's, I see white feet.
The middle does look like to be a cockerel.
Are you going to keep him? My BO boy is sweet, I do like him very much. I also adore my 2 BO girls as well. I think you will be happy with them, they are sweet and friendly (for the most part) - one of my girls has been "playing broody" when she is in the nesting box laying her egg and screeches when you go in the coop. Once she off the nest, she is just doll, go figure...
Thank you. They certainly have stolen my heart. I can't keep the two cockerels as my county does not allow roosters. They have been much less friendly than the pullets, so it won't be to difficult to part with them. I have several of the pullets who are really tame and friendly, and I think we will be happy with them. Should have a hatch of Speckled Sussex next week to eventually join them. Your hen that "plays broody" sounds like a hoot.
