So my last hatch, I hatched 3 of my EE eggs. I had two roosters with the flock at the time. A barred rock and another EE. I was expecting all EEs the first hatch because the BR rooster was so subordinate and the EE hens clearly belonged to the EE. Well I guess he was just a little sneaky because I ended with 2 EEs and a little BR chick. I got rid of the EE rooster about a week before I set the first eggs. Based on feathering the EEs seem to be pullets and the BR seems to be a cockerel due to the comb size. From what others have told me and what I have read, the BR rooster should pass barring onto offspring. So the chicks are three weeksish and the new baby's are hatching today. This is number one out of the gate I was very surprised to not see a black/charcoal chick with a little head spot. This little one has no head spot at all! Shouldn't the baby have it regardless of gender? Hmm More pics The next chick is drying off currently and looks to be another BR x EE. But I am so confused of the color. I also have 3 bantam roosters, two golden sebrights and a silver Sebright mixed in the bunch so skmething could have happened there? They have pea combs so I know mom is an EE. Any ideas? I do love the new babies though more pics soon to come!
