I'm trying to find out who the genetic mother is to our last clutch just out of curiosity so I figured I'd post some pics up here and have people way more knowledgeable about chicken genetics let me know what they see :) It might be hard to identify the mom since the barring was so over powering on most of them but I hope you guys can tell me something!
So here's the dad who has since passed:
And here are the possible momma's:
So we have 3 dark RIR type hens and 2 lighter hens (Maybe RSL?). These pics shows the difference in color between the two:
And we also have this Speckled Sussex hen:
And here are the 8 month old babies in question:
The roo, Alpha-
You can see one of his spots at the base of his neck in this one-
And more spots on the other side-
Here's one of the girls, Ashes-
And here's the one that really surprised us, Ally-
She has a few tiny black spots and when she was younger I swear she had really light cream colored barring on her neck but it has faded since she's gotten older.
Thanks for reading, let me know what y'all think!
