    I thought Bella had a few days left before the babies came, but I got home last night and this lil stinker was running around in the barn!

    He looks to be out of our Buff Orp roo, Elvis, but I cant tell if the momma is a Welsummer, Wyandotte, Sussex, or what...

    Congrats. Well, it is colored somewhat like a Welsummer but I can't tell how distinct the markings are.
    What type comb does it have?

    I can barely see a comb on it.... thats why i'm not sure yet who it belongs to. Bella must have eaten the shell because there are no traces left in the nest for me to check to help determine the mother... I took the rest of her eggs (12) and put under an empty broody so that Bella and baby can go outside.

    ETA:
    It has really dark eye stripes.

    Did I mention that, because I'm a Silly Twilight Freak, the chick will be Renesmee if its a pullet?
