Ok, the chicks I have this year are all from my hens. Here's my confusion, I have 2 Orpingtons 1 Cochin and 2 barnyard mix hens that contributed eggs. In my mind I feel like the chicks from each hen should be the same as each other. So Orpington chicks all look the same and I know which is the Cochin chick. Which leaves my 2 barnyard mixes who produced 3 different colours of babies. How does this work?
