    Eggs didn't hatch out to be what they were supposed to be. What did I end up with?

    #3- This one isn't completely fluffed up yet, but maybe you can get a good enough idea. It's a lot different than the other 2 (gray feet and much more silver down), but came from the same eggs.

    And what were they supposed to be?

    Chick #1 and #2 look like Buff Brahmas. Chick #3 maybe a crossbreed?:idunno

    They were supposed to be Buff Orpingtons. Orpingtons don't have feathered legs and are buff colored as day olds.

    One and two look kind of like Golden Sebrights. They are bare-legged chicks though I think.

    Agreed. But it sounds like they could all be crossbreds though. Gonna have to wait until they feather out.

    Thanks everyone. I'm thinking they are likely all crossbred. Now that the third one has fluffed up more, it looks more like an Orpington, but I don't know what it's crossed with. Brahma or Cochin maybe?

    Are they supposed to be banties? They look like Millie Fluer d’Uccles and Porcelain d’Uccles. Darling!

    They are supposed to be large fowl. They are absolutely precious!! Just not what I was expecting. I'm not mad about it, just disappointed and curious what they might be.
