intense color hatching eggs!
they sent me 7 instead of 6. so nice...
5 eggs made it to lockdown, and 2 were clears/never started developing.
all 5 hatched! Here they are!
This is the Olive Egger. He/she is all black with feathered legs and black shanks. I noticed that it has a single comb, which I know the pea comb gene is linked to the green shell gene. so maybe it is going to lay Marans type eggs? it does have some reddish copperish around it's face. what do you all think?
this is the easter egger! black with yellow on it's belly and chin, cute beard, pea comb and black shanks
splash ameraucana - all white with greyish greenish legs, pea comb, cute beard
ameriflower - strawberry blonde baby with pea comb and pink legs
green magnolia - auto-sexing, appears to be male! darn it... still a cutie anyway
a huge thank you to MyPetChicken for supplying hatching eggs as a prize, this was incredibly fun for me and I loved seeing what surprises hatched out! I am really extremely happy with my 5/5 hatch rate on SHIPPED eggs too!
