    So from my second ever attempt, I present...
    They are a mix of Bielefelder + Buff Orpington and Bielefelder + Australorp.
    Not a single one of my pure Bielefelder eggs hatched. But oh well it'll be fun finding out what these will look like.
    My incubator had a hidden problem and I think it cost me a few eggs. But hey I got 5 healthy chicks and one sort of sickly one that we are giving some TLC.
    If there is any interest I'll post more pics as they grown into their adult coloring.
    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks!
    I think it's interesting that the buff mix has the "chipmunk" like a Bielefelder cockerel but without the white spot on the head. And I can't wait to see what the Australorp mix will look like.

    Yes! She still looks a bit smaller but she is technically 1 day younger. Man she is fast though! Much more nimble than he sisters.
