    Here's the three chicks my broody hatched on Monday the 18th:

    Two were out of green eggs, and one was out of a brown egg. (It could have been from the White Rock broody, but in all honesty could have been from any of my other chickens... they do like to pile in the nest boxes.)

    There are two choices for daddy: Speckled Sussex or Colombian Wyandotte.

    Two of the chicks look very similar to each other, and one is a little bit darker. Just wondering if anybody had some insight on what kind of a mix they might be...

    Also: at what age do green legs show up (if they're going to be green)?

    I'm no good with breed guesses, but I'm fairly sure it's too early to tell gender. Maybe ask again in about 2.5 or 3 weeks?
    Sure are cute, though! [​IMG]

    Beautiful babies. Looks like Daddy is probably the Wyandotte. [​IMG]
