    I got some OEGB eggs from this site. They didn't mark the eggs but said there may be some Mottled and Lavender D'uccles eggs in there also. So I put them all in the incubator and ended up with four that have feathered feet. I don't see how they could be either color. They are still young-hatched May 31st. The first pullet might be a mottled but the second one has alot of red on her. As for the cockerals, they both are darker then I would expect for mottled and none are a lavender. Any ideas?

    Also, I've never had D'uccles before, should their feet be more feathered by now or is this right for their age?

    They all look like mixed breed EEs to me [​IMG] but they are extremely handsome [​IMG] congrats!

    Just curious-- not sure what breed the one in the background of the 3rd pic is, but he looks like a blue laced red something... hes so pretty, do you know what kind he is?

    The rooster in the background of the third picture is an oeg mixed color. His dad is a selfblue and mom is either a Mille Fluer OEG hen or the following hen. Which brings up another question. When I bought her, I was told she was a fawn hen but I didn't realize that there is more than one color of fawn. That I now know of there is silver, silver duckwing, and gold and probably more. Anyone know what she is?
