    I have a bourbon red tom and a BB white hen. I got 4 poults to hatch from them. One is white the other three are colored. The white one looks just like the BB white poult I got 2 weeks before these hatched. They are alittle over 2 months old.

    Here are some pics

    i wounder what they will look like as adults, and how big they will get. i bet the burb will slim down the bbw and make their offspring easier to bred.

    Almost positive your three brown ones will turn out to be Red Bronzes.

    They look like my Golden Narragansetts did at that age.
