    Hello! Just curious on which breeds I have here. I kinda got a mixed bag of eggs.


    !. The little black one.

    2. No tail. He also has an extra toe on one foot. (not sure if these are from hatching)

    Were the eggs pure or mixed breeds?

    Not sure on the black one, but my best guess is a Black Wyandotte.

    The one without a tail reminds me of a Silver Duckwing Aracauna (they don't have tails), but they are usually pretty expensive, and plus he's lacking the ear tufts, so it make me think he may be a mix.

    I bet the cockerel "second pic" is a Faverolle cross. That would explain the pattern and the fifth toe.

    Thank you all so much it helps! I do think he (no tail) is a faverolle cross the lady I got the eggs from did have some. But not many.
