I have 8 hens and 3 roos that free range together. I know that the Amercauna Roo is older and dominant and does most of the breeding. However ever once in awhile one of the two Spitzhauben roos, will get his oppertunity and cover a hen. All my girls are laying regular, and I decided to try some of the eggs in the incubator. 4 have hatched so far, one of the Blue Cochin hens, one blue egg from as Ameracauna, One Spithauben hen, and one from a Barred rock hen. Two chicks look identical just black. one is much smaller, black but with a red tint coloring on the head, and one looks like my Americauna chicks did when I got them in the mail. I guess what I am wondering is do they take more of the mommas genetics or more from the roo? I kno wthey are mixed breeds but, what are the chances of them looking more like one of the parents or is it more probable they will be mixture of both in their traits? I also had two of my hens go broody and setting nests so hopefully I will have a bunch of healthy babies soon. This is the Americauna looking chick, and I noticed it has feather curl where tufts should be one day, so I am hoping he will look like Daddy!
