    I gave my broody silkie 4 eggs to sit on that weren't her's!! My friend had given me some eggs and i have my own and i can't remember what i put under her!!
    so the first chick came out a white egg and looks like this when hatched -


    and this at 2 weeks (not a great pic but wouldn't stand still!)

    Second one came out a blue egg and looked like this

    And at 2 weeks

    The 3rd one came out a brown egg

    and at 2 weeks

    I live in Scotland so none are EE's or Americauna!

    Im thinking maybe mixes. The black one looks like what my BLS/RIR x look like. The boys seem to get barring but the girls stay black. The 2nd looks EE but you said no EE's so I'm not sure. Re looked at the pics and the color of eggs. The first maybe leghorn? the second you said comes from a blue egg do you have cream leg bars there? maybe a mix of that. The black I still think looks like mine
