  3. Hi Krista! Great pics!
    Those Silkies are delightful --- so precious!

    I remember someone hatching a yellow chick from the Frizz pen, but don't remember who, or how it turned out. I haven't gotten one here yet.
    The Cochin roo is 'lemon blue with the barring gene' so there are lots of possibilities.
    The yellow has got to be something from the lemon blue, but I don't know enough about that to predict how they'll feather out.
    We can be surprised [​IMG]
    I hatched a couple here that were blue/black with a headspot and looked like they were going to be barred.
    All the ones with dark skin and/or extra toes are (Cochin x Silkie) X Cochin and could be frizzled. The one w/ the black beak in the first pic is (Cochin x Silkie) X Cochin, too.

    The Am' looks like a black, but could be dark blue.

    Again, great pics! Your backdrop really shows them off well [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    How many weeks does it take to know if they are frizzled?

    The one you labeled Ameraucana doesn't look like it to me.

    Was it hatched from a blue/green egg?

    Yes, it was a nicely colored blue egg. Why doesn't it look Ameraucana to you? It's comb is correct (although you can't see it). (S)He isn't very puffy in the cheeks yet, but neither are 2 of my 3 silver Ameraucana.

    Krista! The colors are gorgeous and the chicks are beautiful!

    I cannot believe that is a military blanket![​IMG] I was thinking some really nice silk comforter![​IMG] Now I can sort of make out the camoflauge. How you got 4 chicks to stand still is beyond me. Nice job!
     
  9. Hi Krista!
    Watch their wing-tips. At 4 days, you should be able to see a little curl (or hook) on those new wing feathers if they are going to be frizzled.
    Sososad... Your Am' chick is the very last of black Jack's offspring. I have the next-to-last one in my brooder here.

    Isn't it odd how there were so many infertile eggs and then the one fertile I got. I wonder if it will be a roo [​IMG] Maybe he wasn't infertile, just a "dry" spell [​IMG] Will be interesting to see how it turns out [​IMG]
