I picked up a dozen eggs from a farmer a few weeks back just to test an incubator with more than anything. He had leghorn and ISA brown hens and a EE rooster. He only had one rooster for 35+ hens so I figured chances weren't good on high fertility rates. Of the dozen eggs, 7 were brown, 3 were white and 2 were green/blue. Not real sure how green or blue eggs were laid by only ISA browns and leghorns so I am guessing there were some EEer crosses there already. Although every hen I saw looked like a prototypical ISA brown or leghorn. It seems the rooster preferred ISA browns the most (or maybe he could just catch them easier) All 7 brown eggs were fertile Only 1 white egg was fertile Only 1 green/blue egg was fertile Now that my little test was more successful than I had imagined... What can I expect these 9 chicks to be like? Just wondering on appearance, temperament and egg colors more than anything. I guess I can't be too picky considering he was selling the eggs for $1 a dozen. (I did give him more than that just to help support a fellow chicken farmer) It's kind of fun having these mixed eggs in the bator.... Kind of like Christmas! I will post some photos of the chicks once they hatch so you all can see what they look like.
