    I'm hatching out bantam white this morning. So excited. I got 3dz eggs from Jerry Segler. 21 went into lock down, so far at least 8 are out and today is day 21.

    lol I was so tempted to buy some more eggs. But I'm gonna wait till I have more coops built before I do that. I just really hope that I get a good hen to rooster ratio.

    Quote:If bred to the SOP they should, some varieties have lighter colored slate legs though than others. You want dark legs though.

    chicks are also born with light to yellow toes but most the time that darkens with age.

    That's what I have thought. I have had a few with almost yellow toes but the slate legs. But I culled them fast
