    Here are a few pictures of some of BAMA's off spring. Thought this might help if your wondering if you hatched any.
    Note the lighter feet. not all may quite this light. Some have just the end of the toes pink. Also notice the mottled beak. This one has more extreme lighter coloring and feathering in with white tips than all will have. I will show you a few more examples

    So were these eggs bought as Bama eggs or added to other BBS orders? [​IMG]

    They were not sold as BBS eggs. Some people bought eggs that they understood were not marked or were marked Bama or mottled or they got eggs from several different pens.

    HEHE, Just wondering, never know [​IMG] could have gotten luckier, as I am already lucky to have the BBS

    My bama pullet had a mottled beak and feet but the color grew out. She is a lovely blackish hen with just a few areas of light - not really white. I can't keep her alone so for now she is in the pen with my BBS orps from Chris.
