That is the problem... A couple are going to look maybe identical.... The horror of the rooster being black, and dominant over all of the other colors in the pen, except the white Leghorns.
Ah well... Maybe I killed them all by opening the bator to put the divider in.... I put the divider in the most important spot, so at least the ones worth different prices are segregated.
Whatever... I see pips,,, but no one else hatched.
I will not peek until morning....
Only one hatched so far was the early chick... Interesting, it is a cross 1/8 high quality Black Copper Marans, 1/8 EE, 1/4 dunno but looked sorta like a Black Copper Marans, and 1/2 high quality Black Ameraucana dad. Intersting, is that mutt mom, is a nice warm brown, and is a pretty good egg producer of nice dark eggs. So... her chicks should be olive, or at least green eggers.
Anyway, early chick is all black, dad's black trumped mom's brown. Interesting since the brown mutt mom is brown, and was from a brown mom and dad that looked a bit like a black copper.
that I didn't shrink wrap and kill them all... I shall report sometime tomorrow.
