    We think this one is a girl but is it a barnevelder like we were told what was in the egg?

    This next little one we are pretty sure is a girl, she is our mix breed between one of our Australorps and a silver spangled hamburg we had for a few weeks, she has a lot of white under her wings, is she a she really (we are hoping she is as the rest are getting sold)

    This is he last one, not sure on breed meant to be a barnevelder as well

    We got 6 barnevelder eggs, 5 hatched and 2 died early on, then we added a few of our own chicken eggs, hence the reason we know the black has to be a mix as we only brought the barnevelder eggs and the hamburg was the only rooster we had in with our girls. Thanks for your help.

    The australorp seems like she could be a girl. Not familiar with Hamburg so I don't know what genes that brings to the table. My australorps had white in their faces and wings until their second feathering around 14 weeks.

    Looks like a barnevelder to me (the boy). Barns are Double laced. I'm currently working on the 'Double-Laced Sebright'. Here's one:
