    One of my hens went broody, so I got her a variety of fertilized eggs. At the same time, both the Olive egger and the Jersey Giant hatched. One of them died, and this one lived. I don't know which one it is. (There's also a chance that my brain is confused, and it could be a cuckoo Marans, but I'm pretty sure that one got cracked open in a different time. I could be confused though.)

    The first picture is one day old. The other ones are now, 5 weeks old.

    It's not any bigger than the other ones that hatched at the same time, by the way.

    Any idea what the parent stock was?
    Looks like it's growing a crest, which makes me think Crest Cream Legbar....
    ...so Olive Egger.

    It's probably an Olive Egger, as it appears to be a Cream Legbar cross.

    I don't know what the parent stock was. I'll try to find out. I wasn't sure if it was a crest, or just the last of her feathers coming in, on the top of her head.
