    So far there are 4 and 1 pipping. You can read their story here https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=201131

    The
    buff colored ones are Buff Orpington/Partridge Cochin. The black ones are EE/Delaware Blue Hen. Unfortunately I had to take them away from their mom for now.

    Here they are!! I will have to get more later..my camera died!!

    Thank you! I missed little babies too...this was VERY unexpected! I would have rather not had more, but I didn't have the heart to take them from her knowing they had already started to develop! So..here we go again!

    I don't know, seems that way. This morning, the one that the momma killed was a Blue Hen/Orp. That baby would have been beautiful! It was the lightest, powdery blue color. I am hoping there is another Blue Hen/Orp in there! I have one that is starting to zip, it looks cochin/orp though. I will just have to wait and see!
