As a 5th grade teacher, we incubated eggs. Only 4 hatched and of the 4, only 3 survived. The eggs were donated to me. I was told they consisted of Silkies, Orpingtons, and Rhode Island Reds.
Can anyone confirm the breeds? I believe the brown one is a Silkie. I originally thought she was a Rhode Island Red, but she has feathers down to her toes now. Also, is there any way for an unprofessional to tell if they are female or male?
