    Hi,
    Recently I bought a brinsea incubator and put 3 chicken eggs that my father acquired from a friend of his which he also acquired from a friend.2 of them were small eggs and the other one was twice te size.Out of the small once hatched one golden sebright and out of the large one hatched what seem a mottled houdan but has only 4 toes.I am not so experienced in chickens so could pls someone tell me what breed and if possible the gender?

    Not sure where you got yours...but hatchery quality ones do. I have had several and they varied greatly on the amount of white, but all of them had at least 1 white primary flight feather and 1 white tail feather....they didn't have that much white on the chest though and they all had greyish legs.

    It could be that they are a mix.To tell you the truth I have acquired these eggs to try the incubator and if my father`s friend is right they have originated from a breeder that exhibits his chickens in shows.

    i dont think even a houdan mix it even lacks the fifth toe that houdans have but whatever it is it looks like it will be mottled.
