    I bought eggs to try in the incubator. I didn't care what breed, I just wanted to try it out. It is my first time incubating and I did great. I got 24 pretty Babies so far, and more hatching. I was told that most of the eggs were delawares. Well they are blue and white with feathered feet. Very adorable chicks. Do you know what they are?

    There backs are not quite as dark as they look in some of the pics.

    The color pattern and feathers on the legs screams Brahmas. Not 100% sure if Light or Dark variety.

    looks like light Brahmas to me! But it could be dark hard to tell from the pics. Just hatched some myself, awesome birds.

    Thank you SummerChick

    I would love it if they were brahmas.


    Brahmas was what I thought they were, Im guessing light, because the lady called them delawares, and the two beeds kind of have the same color pattern being white with black markings.
