Cinnamon Queens?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I think I got had. Purchased 4 eggs from eBay that were supposed to be Cinnamon Queens but I think the person bred CQ to CQ and now Im stuck with non-auto-seeable birds.

 

In CQ the males are born white and the females are born brownish. In my case I had 2 hatch, one was white the other brown. Easy right? Wrong! After about a month, the brown one is looking awfully roosterish and the white one is not. Here are some pics, tell me what you think....Thanks

In the above pic, the white one is as "CQ" as is the brown and white splash one in front of it.

Above: This was the brown chick that in true CQ's should've been a girl. Look at the comb development after 4 weeks.

I think you're correct, you have second generation, thus basically red and white mixed breed birds. The pullets will still lay like champs, though.

Second generation Red Stars/Cinnamon Queens

 

And yes, the hens will lay well...you'll just have to wait to see who is who...but you've got ideas already.
