    I hatched out some of my own mixed eggs. This one is a cross of an orpington hen and my rooster that I don't know what it is. I know it is early, it is only a few days old. Is there any way you can tell if you think this one might be a female? I will keep it if it is, I love the coloring. If not it is going to join the rest of these dual purpose birds and grow up for freezer camp.[​IMG][/img]
