    My partner worked on a farm and the bloke there asked him to take care of his chickens for a couple of days instead of paying him he took some fertile eggs. He had loads of breeds and cant remember his number to ask and cant remember what he said so maybe someone here could help

    There are 3 black, 3 grey/lilac 1 yellow who is one i had to help very weak little chick but will hopefully be ok

    They could be from Blue Jersey Giants, which accounts for the colors since blue x blue is color that can produce black, blue and splash.

    Wow, this thread only got one reply when they were babies? I'm so sorry, I could've told you you had a Barred Rock rooster in there. . .



    Well, you do (the barred one [​IMG] ), - the one without the comb is a Splash Wyandotte cross, the rest are Blue and Splash Andalusians.

    I wondered why i didnt get many replies too [​IMG]

    But nevermind, Thankyou very much. Do you think the barred is pure? and the Andalusians? I just started another post with my 4 older female regarding breed.
    Do you think here i have pretty much only got the one cockerel ? I hope so

    Yep, pretty sure they're pure. The Rock is indeed the only cockerel I see.

I have another post on here somewhere saying that i cracked one egg while candling put sticky tape on it and it was the first to hatch that is why one has a cable tie round its leg because its mine!...lol please tell me what i am hoping that photo 1 and 2 are gurls and 3 is a boy [​IMG]

    The one on the bottom is a boy, sorry. The other light ones are girls. I just noticed they have red earlobes. . . . They're not Andalusians. If they turn white as the birds mature, they are, but otherwise, they're something else.
