    I was supposed to get Texas a&m, jumbo courtenix, golden italian and some rare color genetic breeds but these 2 guys look nothing like the rest of the babies [​IMG]

    Thats not what a bob looks like as a chick..... I believe you'll find that chick will end up "Tux-like" when its grown..... The birds your eggs came from were likely penned together all in one big group..... "rare colors" or "project eggs" usually translates into "I cant really tell ya what all you'll get. They're all in one big pen".... Its only a problem if you want to raise s specific color. Im glad you had a good hatch....
