    I posted pics on my thread under incubating and hatching, and no one has even attempted to answer the age old question. What kind of babies do I have? I am under tha assumption they are OEGB but not 100% and if they are, what color scheme are they? Any guesses welcome...also the sex if possible. Since i have 8 3 month olds that i'm not sure of their sex, would be nice to know if possible LOL

    [​IMG] This one is black in one light, and like a mahogony in another light.


    [​IMG] This one is red, really dark red, again like a mahogony color.

    I'll try tomorrow, I didnt want to fuss with them too much and mama isnt real thrilled with me doing so either. Maybe when it gets nice and warm tomorrow afternoon, i'll attempt. I just figured i'd ask all of the guru's here on the forum because i've found several breeds that the little red one looks like, as well as the brown/black ones...but being such a newbie, i'm completely useless about most everything except what i've read here.​

    I'm trying to learn what I can!!! I have 8 others who i'm not sure of either. I was told 3 were dominiques, but then i find out they look a lot like barred rocks as well...one is a lot lighter in the breast area than the other 2 and seems "plumper". Then i have 3 white with black that I was told they were white rock/barred rock mixed. Those ones look so very much alike except one has the longer tail feathers than the other 2 and one of them is always scuffeling with one of the black barred ones. THEN >lol< i have 2 cochins, one has what appears as yellow-ish goggles around its eyes and the rest, for the most part is black whereas the other has a black "base" with some white on the breast and some gold-ish coloring at the "elbow" but is either molting his baby feathers or someone has picked on his back feathers and they are growing back in. I dont think i have any good pics of those either, but i'll try to get them as well. The only ones i'm sure of are my red sexlink girlies, my black silkie pair >who hatched these new babies out< and my cochins, although i'm not sure if their coloring is considered black or mottled or something else! LOL I know dogs and cats much better than poultry...but IM-MA LEARNIN!!!
