    My daughter and I did a little experiment and bought free range eggs from our local grocery store to put in the incubator 21 days later our first chick from the dozen we bought hatched!! I have no idea what kind of chicken it is. Posing a picture, the darker egg is the shell it hatched from, chick still isn't fluffy. Thank for the help!! 0326181221_HDR_Film1.jpg It hatched a few hours ago....Thank you!!

    Its hard telling with grocery store eggs. Post pictures at about 6 weeks of age.

    That is a good looking bird for a grocery store egg... I am amazed you could hatch it. It has got to be a good egg laying breed one would think...

    I went to a feed store in Benton yesterday and Oreo (my kids named the chick that) looks like the Barred Rocks they had for sale!
