    Well I placed my first 6 eggs in the incubator on Jan 3rd. Yesterday all 6 hatched day 20 I guess. I was a little shocked to see a black chick coming out of my white leghorns egg but then again the daddy is a Rhode Island Red I am curious what it will look like when it gets older. Has anyone else crossed a white leghorn hen with a RIR rooster before. If so what do they end up being?
