    shelley these are all your babies. 7 out of 9 that went into bator.
    here are some pics from this morning.
    feel free to tell me what breeds you think i have. they could be mixed, but what do you see? this is what i got for eggs. "Well, there are RIR, SLW, and white rock hens and roos in the mix, and a few columbian rock hens."

    The one with the spot on it's head really has me stumped! It has to be a SLW, but I'm not sure if it would be mixed. It looks like you got a pretty even mix of colors though! The little striped one we had hatched ended up looking like this:

    Here are some more pics of other chicks we hatched from the same mixed eggs.

    There is also a real dark chick that I don't seem to have a pic of, but she looks like a backwards columbian rock! All black with white collar. (edit) She is in the next to last pic actually!

    I have no idea about sex linked chickens, so you may have some. Hope someone else comes along to help you out with that.
