    I've got 5 eggs from this pair in the 'bator. Any ideas what color the chicks will be?

    These two have such personality & charisma, I just had to hatch a few babies......

    They look like Wheatons. At least I'm pretty sure about the hen. The rooster could be a BB Red. If the chicks are yellow when hatched, they are Wheatons, if they are chipmunk striped the rooster is probably a BB Red. In either case, the male offspring will look like the rooster and the females will look like the hen or similar just a darker brown color with salmon colored breast.
