    Just picked up 4 chicks, they are so cute. 3 are the same and the one is different so I had to have the odd one. We know the mother is a cream brabanter of all of them, but who is dad. I know about 3 Roos on the property, a cream brabanter, an EE and another crossed with a RIR. Lets here your thoughts. The three yellow ones have feathered legs and non on the property have feathered legs. They are cute either way and I can't to see what they grow up to look like.

    looks like the dark ones are EEs and the yellow ones are RIRs. You say the RIR is a cross breed which means there may be a reccesive gene which posseses but does not show and therefore his offspring could have feathered legs. Also RIR chicks are yellow.

    The bottom ones are polish or at least polish cross for sure. Might want to ask the person about it. Looks like the second chick is possibly also polish mix I can see alittle tiny top knot in front

    The mom is a cream brabanter. Maybe she had polish in her somewhere down the line?

    I havent heard of that breed, I will have to look up a pic. Somewhere one of them has alot of polish because that baby has a huge top knot. You might ask if the person has had polish. The hen can stay fertilized by the roo for a few weeks so she can still lay his babies for awhile if a polish was present for any length of time. There are other breeds with top knots but that baby looks almost pure polish. The varieties you get with mixes are awesome I love mixes.
