    I let my broody Silkies hatch out some chicks a few weeks. They were born on February 13. I set Delaware, RIR and New Hampshire Red (and maybe a Welsummer??) eggs under my little broodies, but I don't know which are which because I can't tell their eggs apart. The father is an EE. Anyone care to help me guess the sex/other breed of these babies? Here are the 4 little ones, and my guess as to sex/breed.

    Chick 1 - roo and RIR or New Hamp cross

    Chick 2 - pullet and Delaware cross

    Chick 3 - pullet and RIR or New Hamp cross

    Chick 4 - roo and Welsummer? This chick looks more like my EE chicks did when they were little.

    roo, pullet, pullet, roo. Although body shots on the pullets would be nice.

    As to breed, they're all ee mix [​IMG] Sorry, I have no idea, you're probably right on those, also. I just love mixed breed birds!
