So we have just hatched out some cute little chicks under our black sex link ( I know, right?), all is well, 4 days and introduced into the flock on day 2. This was my first hatch and I let Mother do everything at her pace and glad I did. She keeps them right behind the coop in the corn field, I presume she is really smart as this is her little protection area. lol Anyways, I have no idea what I have here. One was "suppose" to be a silkie but with the white skin, is clearly not. Leg hair, so maybe some kind of cross?? I am also wondering if the two brownish ones with stripes are different as one is lighter then the other. To young for gender being 5 days, but I am hoping for a Roo! The Father is apparently an americana, does this mean colored eggs? Also, the guy I bought them off of still has an add up with the possible breeds, so this should help. Here it is then on with the cute pics.
