    So I bought some rare Auburn Java eggs from an eBay seller. Two hatched. Seller is no longer an eBay member. Hm. Anyway, one chick is clearly an Auburn Java. The other one - any guesses to what breed this adorable chick could be? Thanks!

    I have no idea, but he is cute. I remember seeing Auburn Java eggs for sale on ebay. That's strange they've deleted their ebay account. I saw them for sale on my local craigslist too but they weren't really in the area? They just plasted it all over craigslist.

    Maybe welsummer, barnevelder, ameraucana, mixed? Though I've never hatched those breeds, just a wild guess. Hopefully someone can help you better than I can!

    Thanks for your replies, BayGoose! :) It does look a bit like a Welsummer, but this baby came out of a light brown egg like the Auburn did. Maybe another breed of rooster got to mama hen.

    Anyone else?
