    Any guesses on what color chicks we may get? Mama is a White Leghorn (its day 15 and I'm shocked that she's broody at all.) Papa was a gift from a friend. I think he's a mix. Possibly Black sex link?? He has 5 toes on each foot....here they are,

    Mom should carry a dominant white gene I think.. That makes it try and cover the black so I'd think mostly white with some black bleeding in since its only 1 copy of the gene. Someone correct me if i'm wrong. [​IMG]
