    My mystery chicks hatched today. They are from Shelleyd2008 and were some fun eggs to test my incubator. I had 5 out of 6 eggs hatch. One died around day 19.

    This chick is a really pretty orange color and hatched out of a cream colored egg.

    Looks a lot like number 1 but is a lot lighter and hatched from a white egg.

    The feather legged brown egg is probably from the LF cochin hen we've got, she's black [​IMG] The big baby at the end is a Barred Rock. The first 2 are either OEG or lakenvelders, it's hard to say. Both the OEG and lakenvelder hens lay white or cream colored eggs so those are a toss up.

    I have NO IDEA what the silver chick is, it sure doesn't look splash! I'm sure it's an OEGB, but as for color, who knows?
