    I just hatched 9 eggs in my Hovabator genesis for the first time ever. Had a 100% hatch rate which is AWESOME. However, I have no idea what kind of birds I have. I collected eggs from random friends who have large flocks of multiple breeds of chickens. Does anyone have any ideas as to what these look like??
    Thanks!!

    chick 1: I think this one is a Production Red. My neighbor gave me one of his eggs to hatch and it supposedly came from a production red hen. Big beautiful brown egg. This is the LARGEST chick to hatch.

    Chick 2: Breed unknown.

    Chick 3: Yellow with black racing stripes and a black spot on top of head.

    Chick 4: Breed unknown.

    Chick 5: Breed unknown.

    Chick 6: Another possible Production Red. I had two of those eggs.

    I think the black and white ones are jersey giants, and all the red ones are probably production reds. not sure on the other black ones though.

    The black and white ones could be black australorp mix. Don't know about any of the others. They are super cute! Congrats on such a great hatch!

    I think your right, b/c I just got eggs i'm about to hatch from a Black Jersey giant rooster, & a barred rock hen/ & a prod red hen....supposedly half will be almost all black and the other half will be like yours...the white & black..., now the prod reds & jersey giant mix, I'm not quite sure about yet!, your #8 chicken could be a Buff Orphington...

    If your friends keep large mixed flocks, it is possible that they aren't all pure breeds. The hens may be pure, but if the rooster is a diffferent breed, the chicks will be mixes. However, here are my guesses:

    You have a very cute bunch of chicks! Sorry I couldn't be more helpful and positively identify all of your chicks.
