    My broody buff hatched some 8 chicks 2 months ago. 2 months ago a few days ago in fact(the ones below). Most of them are not even her eggs. One of our hens layed a clutch under her when she went broody. I am not sure what gender they are. I have some ideas for some of them but I am unsure about a few

    This is chick #1. I am unsure of its breed. It is either a buff orpington easter egger mix or a dominique easter egger mix. Either way, it looks like its roo father(easter egger)

    This is chick #2. This is a buff orpington easter egger cross. Some of the feathers are blowing due to the wind but I hope it won't be a problem.

    Chick #1 is a pullet; based on her coloration, she's offspring from the Dominique.

    Chick #2 is iffy but I'd lean towards pullet.
