    I have two random A.G. chicks I pulled from my uncles yard about two weeks ago. There was no sign of mom, and they were only a few hours old. They're feathering in speckled whites, look like Claret or Claret crosses. Two left, two weeks old.

    ETA - they're feathering in a white spangled pattern. Quite the duo. Definitely a pair. I believe they're blue crosses by looking at them.

    Also have 6 Claret crosses from my own hens, they were in with a RIR mix rooster when these eggs were fertilized and one of the hens decided she wanted to go broody. So I let her sit.

    ETA - three roosters, two hens, one I'm unsure on. Feathering in typical claret coloration with the size of the RIR. Very flighty birds, haven't had much handling ( mama hen is BOSS )

    8 total chicks, will take best offer. Includes one 3/4 RIR pullet.

    These birds are mutts. They will be broody OFTEN! Will make egg-cellent additions to any flocks. Will get pics up ASAP.

    These are some pictures of the parents. Hen is mother, rooster is 1 of 2 possible roosters for the mixed chicks. The other possible rooster looks just like him only a LOT more red ( his son, mother was a RIR hen ) - Also included pics of mama hen and the mixed chicks as day olds.

    As you can see all roosters out of this ( grandpa or dad, unsure. Hen had contact with both... ) pictured rooster will sit with the hen. This particular rooster will even sit on a clutch of eggs while the hen is stretching her legs. He LOVES when the chicks get on him and puts them under his wings. Very maternal instincts, passed down to his son ( the RIR mix roo )

    I work in Huntsville so there's possibility to meet up somewhere.
