    Got 6 eggs from a friend so my broody Buff could hatch some babies. Only the two white eggs were viable. On Sept. 18th 2014 two cute little white chicks were hatched. This picture is a week ago at 7 wks. old. The guy who gave me the eggs saw the picture and says he thinks they were from his Phoenix. One is still solid white, the other has a couple of dark gray feathers on her. I have searched the internet and they do look like the white Phoenix bantams. What do you think?[​IMG]

    It could be.

    It could also be a Leghorn. What other types of birds did he have?

    They look to me like White Leghorn pullets. You should get loads of eggs from them. :eek:)

    I didn't think Phoenix came in white? I'd also lean more toward Leghorns, especially with those bright yellow legs. I guess you'll know better once they start laying.

    Phoenix do come in white, but I also don't think they have yellow legs.

    What do their combs look like?

    You know, that was my first thought, because the rooster he had looked like a Leghorn to me! His tail wasn't at all like a Phoenix rooster. I forgot to check on the internet to see if the White Phoenix pullets have yellow legs. These do. And, I thought I read that the White Phoenix is a bantam, and, don't bantams lay small eggs? The eggs these were hatched from were regular size, not small. I don't think this guy knows what breeds he has. I did see a couple of Buffs and some Barred Rock. But, of course, I know that's not what they are. Anyway, just curious. I have 14 other hens and I know what breed all of them are, so I would just like to know what the new girls are. I will keep researching.
