Hi, We just hatched some chicks from fertilized eggs that came free with our last hen and we're having fun trying to figure out what breed mix they are. The owner had 2 roosters, one Wellsummer, one Americana mix and several breeds of hen that were laying , Black Jersey Giants, Red Mixes, Barred Rocks and some brown/black/gold hens she said were Australorps but I think they may have been golden laced golden laced wyandottes or a cross of them. I've been trying to read up on chicken crosses, but I'm still a bit confused, I think we could eliminate the Americana mix as the dad since they would have ear muffs then? they seem to look like BSL chicks, which if I'm reading the information correctly, could come from a barred rock hen with a Wellsummer Roo? do Jersey Giant chicks grow faster then usual chicks? (Pip seems to be growing a lot faster then Shelly, but it's hard to tell since they hatched 3 days apart) The only thing we know for sure is that they're mixed Here's our most current pictures of them: Shelly (4 days old) it's hard to see in the picture, but she/he has almost all black feet with one yellow middle toe on each foot. the only white spots are it's chest, wingtips and derriere. (probably unfounded, but I have a strong feeling that Shelly is a girl) Pip is 1 week old (hatched 2 days earlier then expected!) and his/her adopted Mom, Goldie (she's very proud of 'her' chicks ) Pip seems to have grown faster then Shelly and got feathers much faster. Pip has a good sized white dot on it's head, white on it's chest, all yellow legs, and the feathers that are growing in on the wings look like they're barred black/white.
