    I adopted a hen and her newly hatched chicks a couple of months ago and they have become quite the mystery! What in the world could they be?! [​IMG][/IMG]

    Their cushion combs indicate that they are a cross between a rose comb breed and a pea comb breed. Could be Easter Egger/Wyandotte crosses. At least two are cockerels.
