Rookie mistake: I put 6 eggs each of OE, EE, Buff Orpington, Andalusian, BC Maran and Ameraucana in the incubator. Then they hatched and I have no clue who is who bc of the mix breeds. Any help would be appreciated so I can sell these Roos.

The Andalusians have white earlobes and blue legs. The cockerel with yellow legs looks like a Blue Copper Marans, but with the wrong color legs. Marans are supposed to have white legs. He is probably from an Olive Egger breeding.

The bottom Roo by himself actually has black legs with feathering down the outside, and his back and tail are black with green sheen, with dark copper head (He's gorgeous but doesn't photograph well). Ideas?

I vote FCBM! If you look at the photo you can see the ash grey legs and the nice feathering on the outside of the legs.
