A lady I work with gave me some eggs for eating from her flock, then went off on an extended holiday, so I won't be able to ask her what she keeps until mid january. As I was getting ready to stick the eggs in the fridge, I remembered that she keeps roosters with her hens. Since I've been itching to hatch some eggs, it just made sense to stick some of them in the incubator instead of the fridge. Now I have 6 little peepers in the brooder, all of them a little different. So now I'm curious. I'm betting it's a long shot on guessing what's in these little guys, but I figured I'd ask anyway. What I do know about their parent flock: It's a completely free range flock, 18 hens and 3 roosters. The owner pretty much lets the broodies hatch out the next generation, but they do bring in new chickens from the feed store every 2 to 3 years. I can't remember exactly which breed she mentioned, but she did tell me she prefers one of the breeds with 'red' in the name; but it wasn't one of the sex-link or hybrids. She also likes EE's. Other than that, I don't know what she has. Okay, here's some pictures: Chick #1, hatched out of a green egg. Well, I know this one has EE in her. Actually, these first three are almost the spitting images of my 3 EE hens, when they were chicks. Chick #2, hatched from a dark cream/very light brown egg: Chick #3, wasn't there to witness the hatch, so this one came out of a brown egg, or a white egg Chick #4, came from a brown egg or a white egg. Not sure how well the pictures show it, but she's a darkish yellow/orangy color, all through. Chick #5, came from a brown egg or a white egg. This little one also has a different comb than all the rest; larger, more pointy things on it. Pale yellow color. Chick #6, hatched from a white egg. Pale yellow color, with three blackish dots on her back. So, any guesses?
