    What are these? Not what i was expecting

    These are from eggs I bought from a "breeder" on ebay. Sold as golden cuckoo marans, and Golden Blue cuckoo marans. Is that what I have? They all have straight combs. 2 or 3 have lightly feathered shanks.

    URGENT: Blood from nose/mouth during hatch. What to do?

    I've never seen anything like this. I just went to check on my chicks hatching and there is one bird that was just about out that has blood around his nose/mouth. It's hard to tell which. It appears otherwise fine, and is cheeping, but is still bleeding. Should I take it out? Should I wait and...

    Hoping this little Bantam Cochin is a hen, Help?

    I'm not sure if it's too early to tell or not. This was our first chick to hatch and is named genesis, pretty little thing. We're hoping for a hen, but the size of the comb is fairly big, but hard to tell, thoughts? And while we're at it, what about these guys, any guesses?
