    That's great! It sounds like you will have a fun mixture of chicks. Are you planning to keep track of which chicks came from which parents?

    I am in the same boat as you. My eggs arefrom free range chickens and was told it would be a guess as to what they will look like. I was promised they would be pretty:D Good luck with yours

    Sounds like a wonderful mix! I've finally got my bator going, and now just waiting a couple of days to make sure it's going to be stable before I go egg hunting. [​IMG]
