    This pretty peep hatched yesterday but am unsure what it is as uit was a surprise egg.
    I know seller had Brahmas and astralops but am unsure if anthing else.
    A little bigger than my BO chicks and really stocky. I'm going to call him "Large". [​IMG]

    I agree with the others. Most likely a cross.

    Thanks! Yes, he is sure a puff ball and like a BIG baby he is very laid back and sweet.

    Very CUTE little puff ball. I won't be surprised if it is a little roo. Most likely a BA cross.

    Looks like an australorp to me. I'm wondering why folks think it's a cross?

    Definitely not Brahma, as I'm pretty sure they have feathered legs and you would see some sprigs if that was in there. Cute chick!

    Quote:I was leaning in that direction as well looking at a zillion chick pictures tonight.
    I am really hoping ......as the other 3 eggs that i got along with it WERE marked brahma eggs.....but were lost. This would be a nice surprise. [​IMG]

    It's an australorp crossed with something like an EE, I think. It has the makings of a cute lil' beard, like an EE chick.
