Please help with breeds of my chicks

possible breed combinations:

(a) Ameraucana roo X Blue Splash Marans hen
(b) Ameraucana roo X Cuckoo Marans hen

(c) Ameraucana roo X Ameraucana hen

All parent chickens are pure breeds. One rooster fathered all 16 chicks.


How do I know which chick comes from which hen?

And, can a chick that is half Marans have no feathers on it's feet? or are all of the chicks with featherless legs pure Ameraucanas?

I'd love to know. Thank you.

anyone know the breeds???? They all have the same Ameraucana father.
The moms are either Ameraucana, Blue Splash Marans, or Cuckoo Marans. Thanks.

Since they are all pure breed, then the Marans crosses should be the only ones with feathered legs. But since I don't know about leg feathering genetics, then it may be possible that some of the nonfeather- legged chicks are Marans crosses

Ok, so the ones with no feathers on the legs are likely pure Ameraucana then? Very cool.

How do I know which feather-legged chicks are mothered by the blue splash marans, or the cuckoo marans? My curiosity is killing me. LOL

edit: all of the chicks with feathered feet are light, except for one that we named Red. Two of the light ones (pictured together) do not have feathered feet. Any thoughts?
