With the exception of my black chick, who indeed is going to be a Gold Laced Wyandotte, I would assume (mom is silver laced, dad was BO), the rest of my chicks are all buff, and their feathers are coming in buff. I have australorp, brahma, and maybe RIR in the mix...so how will I be able to tell whose babies were whose? I am SO hoping we have a RIR/BO mix because of losing Marti and Billy after the dog attack. Any ideas how I can tell? Also...none have feathers on the feet like my Brahma does...does that mean none of the Brahma hatched, or did the BO gene take over? Every hen should have at least had 1 egg in the nest (we had 13 eggs...6 to 7 were "questionable" because the broody got off of them in the day the first 2 days and would only "night sit").
