    I couldn't begin to guess at a breed but in my experience the yellow color with the dark brown stripe usually turns out to be a black breasted red color pattern, of course there are lots of possible genetic modifiers... it'll be fun to watch and see

    Could it be a red cochin? I have partridge cochins and they are actually a solid red before they get feathers.

    I don't know... they came to me by my sister in law... and she said they are a mix...

    I guess when they get older I'll have to do more figuring out;). But that one did come out a green egg...

    The one with the brown stripe and cute face looks identical to one of my EE at the same age. If it came out of a green egg that sounds like a prettty good bet it is an EE.

    I did notice I couldn't get a pic right after I changed their paper towels... and I can't believe how much poop comes out of them!

    Oh trust me ------ you have no idea how much comes out!!!!! [​IMG] And as they grow, all I can say is just watch your step. I use DE in my run every couplle days and in the coop and it does help to keep it dried up and makes clean up a breeze. I just go and rake the run every morning it only takes a minute to do.
