Below are my first hatched first chickens to ever own. Born on May 11th, from regular brown eggs. I got the eggs from my neighbor who says is hens are RIR and that he thinks his Roo is a traditional game cock. While searching photos of Welsummers I noticed that my girls kind of look like them. Could it be that mine are RIR's crossed with a Welsummer roo? If thats so, is it possible for mine to lay dark brown eggs? I'm still waiting for my first eggs, should be soon.
