Ok get ready. this is gonna be long. I want to start a breeding flock. I have 1 australorp hen, 1 olive egger hen, and 3 chicks. I need help identifying the chicks. The dad was a new Hampshire/marans cross and the mom was also a new Hampshire/marans cross. They had 7 babies 5 were black 2 were red. What breed would they be called? would they qualify as an Easter egger because they are a marans cross? I know Easter eggers are just mixes and olive egger have to be some marans. If both of the parents are crosses, are they easter eggers? The mother hen looks like a black sex link but is a marans/ new hamp cross. I am so confused!
