In the Brooder
- Jun 11, 2018
we had one of our hens go broody and she ended up stealing a eggs from our other 22 hens before we found her. So we let her keep and hatch her few eggs, she hatched 3, 1 died, 2 are great and we put the egg she abandoned in incubator and that chick is working on busting out right now. So out of our 22 hens we have I’m curious as to what these chicks will be, 1 is yellow and I’ve already determined it is out of the light Brahma roo we have but I’m not sure of the hen. The other chick is black mainly with some white and silver, assuming it is from the Australorp roo we have. My question is would it be possible to be able to tell what breed of hen on these chicks? I have a variety of hens that include barred rocks, buff Orpington, australorp, sapphire gems, golden comets, Rhode Island reds and Asians. My Roos are light Brahma and australorp.
