    I had 18 Polish eggs sent to me. Of the 18, 1 was broken upon arrival. I candled at Day 12 and found 10 undeveloped. Ok, down to 7. Of the 7, two hatched! But, um, I don't think they're Polish. They're adorable (and one of them has an incredible set of lungs), but what are they? The eggs were pretty dirty when I received them, but several of them appeared to be a light tan color, including the two that hatched. So, if they're not Polish, what are they?? (besides cute 'lil chickies)?

    The tiny chick combs and the white spots on the head look very much like my barred rock chicks. I'm a newbie, though - maybe someone more experienced could chime in.

    The picture is a bit tough to tell but they may be BR.

    They have a small single comb and their legs are mixed yellow & black.
