    A farmer gave us 2 dozen eggs to incubate from his assorted bantams/standards, and we had no idea what they'd look like before the hatch. 12 hatched yesterday, and they are mainly brownish/red with black chipmunk stripes. One is black with a white spot on his head (Barred rock?), one is a goldish yellow color, and the rest are chipmunks (Old English??). Their eggs ranged from a light pinkish brown to a light coffee color. Can you help me figure them out? [​IMG]
    I'll have to upload the rest of them when I find the good camera.

    Oh! Well thank you for your reply. Any guesses would help at this point. I suppose I don't really need to know what they are, but I must know or it'll drive me crazy! [​IMG]
