Hey all-- So I put 6 eggs under my VERY broody Salmon Faverolle, Floris, and 4 hatched into adorable chicks. I got a barnyard mix of eggs, and of the ones that hatched, two were blue, one was cream, and one was brown. Obviously, the two blue eggs came from an Easter Egger and I'm not sure of the cream or brown, though the brown was likely either a Dominique or an Australorp. Three of the four chicks look almost identical-- their coloring tells me that a Dom rooster was most likely their father. The lady I got the eggs from has Dom, EE, Buff Orps, Silkie, and Cochin roos running with her hens. Since these three babies look like other barred babies before they get their adult feathers, I'm guessing the Dom was the father--so that means two of them are Dom-EE crosses. The fourth baby (and last to hatch) was a pleasant surprise. Coal black skin, beak, fuzz, and adorable black feathered legs! The black skin tipped me off first--clearly, daddy was a Silkie!! Judging by the egg, I think mom might have been an Australorp. The baby has Silkie-type feathers, skin, and legs, but only has 4 toes, like a regular chicken. It'll be fun to see what all these babies look like when they grow up. Admittedly, I'm partial to the Silkie x chick, though, and I really, really, really hope it's a girl so I can add it to my flock. What do you guys think?
