    Okay heres the deal, I got hatching eggs from a fellow BYC'er on here, traveled the whole way from California to here in PA. All but one egg developed to hatching. Only a few were marked most weren't as the breeder didn't have time to mark them as she was going on vacation as she was getting them ready to send out to me. ANYWHOOO!!! So heres the game!!!

    Chicks are 2 days old today, some I'm pretty sure what they are others I'm unsure. I want to see if you agree with the breeds, and or what you think they are. ALL chicks are pure! Theres the possibility for Cochins, D'Uccles, Old English Game Bantams, and Seramas. ALso if you'd like to guess colors go right ahead im curious what you all come up with! I will keep it updated as they mature so we can see who was right and such! [​IMG] I paired and trioed up chicks that I am pretty sure are the same breeds. [​IMG]


    Chick A

    Chick C

    Chicks D & E

    Chicks F, G & H

    Chick I

    [​IMG]

    And lastly....

    Chick J
    [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure that D & E are OEGBs
    I'm also pretty sure that chicks B and I are cochins?
    I'm thinking F, G & H may be seramas (they had the poss. of having feathered feet)
    A I think is a D'Uccle
    and C was marked as a Serama if I remember correctly but I may be wrong.

    Guess and guess away! [​IMG] Make sure to say the letter with the chicks you are trying to ID. Remember if you know the colors as well please post what you think they are too [​IMG] Winner just gets the knowledge of knowing that they guess the most correctly [​IMG]

    Chick D looks like a serama. F, G, and H are they must be crossbread IF they are seramas. Seramas will occasionally pop up booted, but not to that extent unless someone breeds for feathered feet.

    I think the breeder is breeding for feathered feet as she told me some may have feathered feet (which I think is facinating) [​IMG]

    as for everyones guesses so far, we'll see [​IMG] I'm really interested and am happy I get a front row seat to their development [​IMG]
