I bought the eggs from a breeder in MN and they overnighted the eggs to me. I got the "assorted" package of 16 eggs. So I have no clue. I never should have hatched my own. I should have bought them from a store so I knew (for the most part) I was getting females!Welcome to BYC!
You hatched these from your own eggs?
If so what breed of chickens do you already have running around?
I read an article that said the roosters tend to be more friendly when they are chicks. The fist two, I do believe you are right with the breeds, run from me. But that third one since the day he hatched followed me around. I can't step backwards without having to make sure he is not there. He is a great bird/pet. I am going to be upset getting rid of him. I already started asking around. But no luck yet.All look like cockerels.
First could be a Rhode Island Red and the Second is an Easter Egger. No idea about the Third.
Your being kind saying courageous. I think it was stupid. Just wasn't thinking. I am so used to hatching ducks, pheasants and quail to be released, I just didn't think it through. Now myself and my neighbor who I gave some to are so attached to them.welcome to BYC! First time with chickens and you hatch your own - You really do like to live dangerously, don't you? Hats off to you for being so courageous. I reckon the first and third are cockrels, and the second is a pullet. No idea on the breed though, I'm afraid. They look pretty though...
