    View attachment 1503762 I hatched 3 chicks from a Fun and Funky egg pack from MPC. One is a bantam and looks like she'll have gorgeous coloring. The other 2 were large, green/blue eggs so I'm wondering what breed they all are. I've gotten day-old chicks before of different breeds but these 3 don't look anything like those either. MPC lists their Fun and Funky eggs as including:
    Possible Fun and Funky Genes: Crested, Frizzle, Sizzle, Naked Neck, Silkied
    Possible Breeds: Easter Egger, Cochin, Silkies, Polish, Silchen, Seramas, etc.

    So etc could mean anything too I guess. The black one also seems to have a beard which doesn't really show well in the pictures. Maybe it's too early to tell but any help would be appreciated.

    If I understand it right MPC's "Fun & Funky" are mixes of those breeds.

    Right , it could be anything from that list. I'm just wondering if anyone can take a guess at what they are.

    Oh ok. Its way to early to know for sure. Some traits don't show up until later, especially color, pattern, and partial crests. Guesses would be just that as of now.

    Since they are most likely mixed, you better wait until Round 6 weeks. We will have a much better idea then, plus the gender may be obvious.

    I don't think they're mixed, could just be any of the many breeds listed. I've never had a polish, frizzle or silchen (whatever that is) so not sure what they look like as babies. It'll be interesting.

    Frizzle and Silchen aren't breeds. According to MPC's website the "fun & funky" eggs are from "multiple pens with crazy combinations".
