    I purchased fertile eggs from an individual and have no idea what breed these babies are. Can anyone help me with this? Please?[​IMG]

    One looks like an Easter Egger. The other looks like a Frizzle.

    They might both be Easter Eggers or Easter Egger mixes. The black chick definitely had a Frizzled parent. It's a dominant gene, as is the gene for blue eggshells.

    Well, in that light, are feathered legs reproduced when you breed a feathered legged chicken to a non feathered legged chicken? Is the feathering dominate, or recessive?
