    Just hatched out about 17 (so far) little chickies from a mixed batch of eggs. Some of them seem a little off from what I was thinking so I probably have them all mixed up. Any thoughts on my guesses? The eggs are supposed to be: Cuckoo Maran, Blue Splash Maran, BLRW, Light brahma, Cochin, blue orp.

    Here goes:
    BLRW?

    Cochin? (only one this color with fuzzy legs, and I have only one cochin egg)

    Cuckoo Maran?

    Blue Orp - pretty sure on this one:

    Light Brahma?

    Now here's the weird one.I know one of the 'blue splash maran' eggs hatched and another one that's in the bator is a greyish color. However, I have this one orangey chick. Is this one of them? I know SOMETHING hatched from that egg. [​IMG]

    Quote:I think 2 is cochin, 3 is definitely CM, 4 is Blue Orp.

    The Blue Splash Marans would have feathered feet. I hatched out a Blue Marans and the blue is very pronounced.

    Well what the heck is that orange chick? and where is my blue Splash maran? hahaa. I have a lot of chipmunk looking chicks that I thought were the BLRW. I'll go check now and see if any of them have feathered feet! [​IMG] Two more of the maran's just hatched and they are definitely lighter in color.

    Ok, THIS one could be the blue splash maran, yes? It looks a lot like the brahma but it's grayer. Then a top view of orange chick - maybe a variation on the BLRW?

    You have your cochin and light brahma mixed up. Light brahmas should be a yellowish color. And you last one does look like it could be BLRW.
