    The one on the right with two cream colored stripes on it's back looks like an EE.

    Thank you everyone.. they are super cute.
    I am a teacher and we did this as a class to study the life cycle of a chicken..
    We had 19 eggs both brown and green egg. So far, 9 have hatched and maybe a few more tomorrow when I check the incubator at school. we are now on Day 24 is there a chance more will still hatch?
    This is a very cool thing to do with kids.. my entire school has been coming in all day to see the progress.. we got to see 2 hatch today
    The farmer will be taking back the chicks minus a few to different families in my school
