Anyone have an idea of what breed they are? The little brown one came from a very tiny white egg. Thank you for your help

    The two little feather legged ones could be a d'Uccle and Silkie. The big chick could be many different breeds. Were they suppose to be pure hatching eggs? Any chance they could be crossbreds?

    Were the eggs part of a "surprise package" from a commercial hatchery or reputable breeder, or were they from a barnyard flock/random person? The latter would most likely yield what are known as" barnyard mixes" making a true" breed identification" not an issue

    They are just barnyard mixes. I was just curious of what could be. Thank you for the responses

    Do you have contact with the person the eggs came from? Asking what breeds they have in hens and roosters will be helpful

    She has everything. I just grabbed them for the experience for my 4 yo daughter. Barnyard mixes are fine, she’s loves them all I’ll just be surprised as they grow to see how they turn out. Next time I will order a specific breed.
