    Ok here they are- 8 left to hatch-heres the possibilities-no white eggs have hatched yet off the leghorn-

    Golden laced wyandotte rooster cornish X pullet
    RIR Rooster gold comet pullet
    black orpington pullet
    **white leghorn**
    golden laced wyandotte pullet


    do I have any purebreds? the dark one looks mostly like a golden laced wyandotte but maybe not dark enough- the tan ones have the skunk stripes also-the black one has golden on belly and wing tips.

    I was so hoping for a golden laced wyandotte-thanks guys-for helping me as I learn!!!-(edited to add pullet)

    Just curious, how are you expecting any purebreeds if you dont have hens and roos of the same breed ?

    Its hard to say but the color which ones would be the father becuase both roos have similar coloring and will throw similar chicks but the ones from Wyandotte roo should have rose combes. But of your chicks

    The two white ones with the redish faces are from the Cornish cross hens, thats what I got from that cross.

    The two black ones would be from the Black Orp hens since black is dominant in most crosses and produces mostly black chicks with leakage.

    The others would be from the Golden Commet, her chicks when breed to those two roos should be about half Black tailed Red Columbian like a RIR and Half White Tailed Red Columbian like the Golden Commet. Im thinkg the red one under the black one and the one in the top right will be white tailed, the bottom right red one will be black tailed for sure, and the other two will probably be black tailed too.

    Again, look at the combes to find out which was the daddy, the ones from the Wyandotte should have rose combes.


    Oh and if you do hatch any from the white leghorns they should be about the same color as the cornish cross ones, just smaller.

    None of your birds can be purebreds. All of your roosters are different breeds from the hens.

    The only way you can get a purebred is to have a rooster and hen of the same breed/color. (The only exception to which is blue/black/splash - still must be same breed).

    However, you have a bunch of very cute little chickydees. Congrats!

    No. A GLW will look just like the chick in the above pic, same color and all.
