    A month old chick that looks EXACTLY like her mother! [​IMG]


    Has anyone else crossed SLW with BA and gotten BA looking chicks? I have another broody hen so I put 3 more BA eggs under her... hope I get 3 more black pullet chicks!!

    Yes - but can't find the pics just now.... First cross with either SLW or GLW over BA will come out looking pretty much like an Australorp with rose comb (unless your SLW or GLW carries the single comb gene). The leg color in mine turned yellowish with age (as opposed to the black aussie legs) but they were all black. [​IMG]

    Cool! I've got to get out there and get some pics of her (I think it's a her [​IMG] ). I got her mother, Betty, at 5 weeks old and this chick, BB (stands for Betty's baby), now looks just like Betty did when I got her, black legs and all. [​IMG]

    When you cross most colors with Black you will get Black offspring.

    This is the first year we've let our chickens hatch out chicks. Fascinating seeing what comes out of those eggs!

    Y'all have me curious as to if I've guessed the mothers of some of the other mutts we hatched out this year. Could this happen...

    picture 2 is possible
    picture 3 is possible

    Now Picture 1 I would say was out of you EE (Easter Egger)
    A cross of a Silver Laced Wyandotte and a Silver Lakenvelder should give you Silver Laced offspring.. (The lacing being incomplete or not very good)

    What type of comb is on the Lakenvelder?
