In the past month my boyfriend and I allowed our Quail d'Anver hen to go broody in our garage behind some bales of alfalfa. She has tried going broody a few times in the past but never found such a private place.. that the bigger hens couldn't kick her out of, lol. We 4 eggs and only 3 hatched, but she still has 5 under her (with a Cubalaya egg or two also) but here is the real reason for this post: we don't know who the daddy is. Of the 3 chicks that hatched all are the same exact color, with minor discrepancies in their chipmunking. Again, the mama is a quail d'Anver but the dad may be: a Buff Chantecler, a Wheaten Cubalaya or a Millie Fleur d'Anver (from Boggy Bottoms). I assume that due to their uniformity that the parents are both genetically pure to their pattern/color - or at least darn near so - giving reason to the uniformity of the progeny. Been playing with the chicken calculator but I am just not as familiar with real world examples of what I am looking at, especially because this cross is so random.. Here are some pictures and let the guessing begin: Their faces all look like this, a creamy sort of color that fades into a buff and off-white chipmunk stripe. Looks very much like the faces on a Quail d'Anver. Here is a profile of one of them. Their sides at hatch looked almost lavender but have revealed themselves to be a smokey, dark grey that is very bluish in some lights. The strip down the back is black, for some reason in photos it looks much more red. You can see where the buff sorta off-white starts on the head and goes along their belly. This third pic is just for good measure as you can see two at once. I can't quiet tell what their combs are but they look like roses, slightly cushion, but their is a definite bump (I think) towards the back.
