A little over a month ago I got these chicks from a chicken auction. They did not know what they were. Now that they are a little older and their feather are coming out I thought someone might have an idea. They are feather-footed and it looks like they have fuzzy cheeks.at this point (which makes them so cute looking). This is the Roo. This is the hen. What are they? Anyone? Also, I have a Splash Orphington that has just started laying within the past week. I wanted her to hatch them if she would. She would have bred with a RIR (I have seen the deed). I read that you cannot tell if a brown egg is fertile until its 5th day. If I look and it does not look like it, is it still a good eating egg? I am a new chicken owner and do not know all the do's and don'ts. If I am wanting her to hatch a few - I would love to see the mixture - and also I would like to collect eggs, how long is too long for them to sit? I won't let them continue to collect in the nest if they will spoil. Thank you for any information on the breed and egg stuff!
