    i left the other 4 eggs in the bator even though they havent hatched. was going to clean it out today and their was one little black chick with yellow wing tips and a yellow butt. looked again and another egg is pipping and the other two moving and chirping so i will leave them there. its been 7 days of babys.

    Daddy looks like a Red Star (sex-link) rooster. Mine looks identical...mostly white with some flecks of reddish-brown. The offspring will definitely be mutts...but should have plenty of hybrid vigor and be good layers.
    What breed are the hens?
