    So, a family at 4H hatched these for fun but couldn't keep them. Of course we can take them...so what do we think they are? The eggs were bought as a mix from http://www.chickenhousesplus.com/fecheg.html

    Barred
    rock perhaps?

    Looks like a couple of Barred Rocks and an Orpington to me! They're beauties!

    girl, girl boy. And only a guess by looking at how the advanced feathering is on the first two.

    There is another black one with white headspot out there too but it was pretty quick and the picture came out terribly blurry. I'm hoping for all gals but I know each egg is 50/50.
    It's fun to guess.
