    [​IMG] Thank you!! [​IMG] CW=Columbian Wyandotte

    I hope they're girls!! I so wanna keep them. I love the EE hen I have. And I absolutely LOVE the coloring the roo threw onto these babies. I have another from the third batch that looks like these. My last one hatched out a week ago, and looks like the mom. It's a bit darker than the other ones.

    Here's a pic of the Dad:

    Wow you momma hen looks identical to my Annie EE. Wynadottes have a look of the Delaware. Well not identical but the coloring and your rooster looks similiar to my rooster Jack. (combs are also different as well) I have had some broody hens hatch out some babies this year. One is a Delaware roo/EE momma (kinda whitish and the beard, black feathering around the hackles and tale feathers) He is absolutely gorgeous. His name is Duke and he is going to be a total handful. Be glad when the teenage years are done. He is awful.

    The coloring is absolutely gorgeous on your hopeful girls. I mean I would love one. lol.... but have wayyyy to many now though. working on my 4th coop. But only have roughly 40+ chickens. just need to proper set up is all. I am an over acheiver. lol
