But I hatched 2 chicks from my late Polish roo (black and white crested) named Bobblehead and my Brown Leghorn, named Raptor.
The first chick that hatched, whom is most definately a little roo, looks like the Bride of Frankenstein! Probably the ugliest chick I've ever seen. Here is Bobblewrap #1:

Here is his precious little sister, born 4 days later, on day 25. I was about to toss the egg when I saw the pip!

And here they are next to each other. I am amazed how different their combs are. #1 has a single come turning into a double with one little "horn" at the top middle. His is very pink. Hers is a small black single that looks like it might turn double.

They also have the teeniest little fluff of feathers right on the front of their foreheads as well as different colored eyes and legs. Very interesting.

They're adorable!!!


I have had some funky combs from crossing EE's with single-combed breeds, but nothin quite this good! hehehehe I also got a black sexlink roo from a White Leghorn dad and Cuckoo Marans mom, he had one HUGE white earlobe on one side and a small red one on the other side! Sadly, he escaped the pen a few days ago and disappeared without a trace. I wouldn't have known what happened except I caught a few pix of him out of the pen on my game camera.
