    Hey just needing some help working out what breed these newly hatched babies are. I was told they could be Araucuna or Coronations (and possibly either breed cross).
    I hatched these guys yesterday and today in the incubator. 3 eggs were smaller and green and the other 3 were large fairly normal coloured eggs.
    What have I ended up with?[​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC.

    You need to use the picture thing on the tool bar to post it is a couple step process.


    Identifying chicks is best done before they hatch. Keep the eggs from each breed separated by a grid of plastic or wire, or use a hatching bag...

    BTW what color is normal color eggs? White or Brown?

    Good luck,

    Newly hatched chicks are the not a good age for doing breed ID's

    I'd say all the fluffy cheeked chicks would be your Araucuna and the others would be your Coronations
