After 21 long days, my White Cochin, Mallow, hatched all four of her eggs! We got them from a friend since we don't have a rooster and they are mixed breeds. We have determined one to be a Barred rock/ Silver laced wyandotte and the other three to be Black sex link/ silver laced wyandotte. They are all happy and healthy but I am stuck on names! Any Idea what to name the triplets?

All of your chicks are so cute! They will grow up to have rose combs like the wyandotte parent. The barred chicks may be roosters depending on if the wyandotte is the rooster and the barred rock the hen. If its vice versa, they could be either male of female. My bet is that the all black ones are female due to being part sex-link. Look for "bubbling" on their combs. The bubbling is only seen in males, the female may have pinkish combs but no bubbling. For example:

Male with rose comb, female with rose comb.

Now for names:
Rosy
Mist
Benji
Haven
Kirk

Sorry for the rant! :D
