    I am new to the forum.
    I have had our hens for about 3 months
    I received my rooster in december
    It will be 1 year old in march
    I know it was raised in a classroom.
    His feathers are a little beaten up because he was attacked by a dog before we adopted him around october or november.
    We are incubating eggs of his, and are curious what the chicks will look like. The first 5 are Moe our rooster, the next 4 are Lightning our smallest hen
    We have 6 hens
    3 New hampshires (2 year olds)
    1 Rhode Island
    1 Amaricana
    and 1 rare bird we still arent sure what she is yet.
    but her eggs are 4 of the ones we are incubating small - med size off white/cream color aobut 2" long, she lays everyday. We are incubating 11 in all
    She use to have feathers on her head but now Moe removes them when he is mating which happens alot.

    Any help is apprecaited, Thank you
    Shawn

    I don't know about your roo. He kind of looks like a duckwing color. Heres my sliver pheonix if this helps.

    The female is a Fayoumi {I'll take everyone's word on spelling].
    The male may be part Phoenix but note the difference in breast colour between him & the Silver Phoenix posted by pidgey104.
