I let one of my girls sit on 5 eggs - 2 weeks ago all 5 hatched. She was sitting on 3 easter egger eggs..... one large brown egg I believe was from a black sex link and a smaller brown egg I believe was laid by a buff orpington. The rooster is a RIR.

Is it too early to play the hen or roo game?

here are the chicks with my guesses. . . .

Looks like a pullet for now, though the stance/thick legs are slightly suspicious.
