I thought I mixed up my Legbar eggs with Legbar x EE hybrid eggs during my Easter HAL. But I had 3 chicks hatch exactly like this from what I thought were Legbar eggs. Can someone help me figure this out? Here is the picture of one of the chicks when it was a few days old and now at 3 weeks:
Here are the possibilities:
1. The eggs were not Legbar eggs and they were hybrid eggs from a CCL rooster x Wheaten Easter Egger.
Here are pictures of the possible mother as a juvenile.
Cons: No muffs on all 3 suspect chicks. Muffs on 2 other chicks that were confirmed EE hybrid eggs.
2. The Cream Legbar hen mated with my 17 week old CL x Red Star hybrid cockerel:
Here is a pic of the cockerel a few days before I collected the eggs. He had just started crowing that week and I did not think any of the girls were letting him near them.
3. Last but not the least, it is a White Sport Legbar and so are the other 2 siblings:
Father and Mother are possible siblings. They were hatched from eggs that came from the same flock so possibility of both having recessive white gene is very high. I am waiting on some eggs to hatch this weekened and next with 2 separate folks who got eggs from me to see if they hatch any more of these chicks.
