    Hey guys!! On September 30th, we had to rehome our roosters. [​IMG] Before they left, i tossed some of the hen's fertile eggs into the bator, hoping for some more chicks! So far, 2 out of 6 of those eggs have hatched, but hopefully more will hatch!
    There was only one rooster that had acess to the hens. He was black with red streaks (were still not sure what breed! [​IMG]). We have 4 hens, but only 3 were laying at the time. 2 hens were Red sex links, and 1 was a Black sex linnk. there is no way to identify who laid which egg because they are all brown. I was anxious to see what a mix of them would be like!! But, i was definitely NOT expecting this!!!!!!

    Your parent stock were all hybrids/mutts. None of which breed true. The offspring can easily inherit recessive genes to end up exhibiting phenotypic qualities that were hidden in their parents.

    I wanna know how she turns out!

    love the black speck on her beak. I just had a black and yellow EEmutt hatch out and he has a swirl of white on his little black beak! Maybe yours stole the black from mine [​IMG]
