    Here are a couple of my guys, they are growing like weeds!!!! The male Houpington has a funky comb, it is sort of standard and sort of hornish like the Houdan. The Rhodean is a cutie!
    I have some in my bator and one is from my Lakenvelder hen, not sure if it will be pure or have a Houdan or Phoenix daddy!

    Thats possible too, the RIR and BO eggs were about the same color and size then. The RIR girls eggs are finally bigger now.

    But, my Hoopingtons looked similar at that age, but then yours now do have the reddish color in them. Who Knows????? [​IMG]

    The Phoenix looks a lot like a Silver Phoenix, just a little lighter, it will be interesting to see how that one grows.

    I just went back and looked at the Hoopington pics at about the same age, they were lighter around the eyes, more yellow color
    If yours were the darker reddish around the eyes I may have mistaken the eggs and they are RIR X
