    Well, two of my mutt eggs hatched and a 3rd is pipped. The father is a Black Standard Cochin, his girls are a BLack Cochin, Buff Orpington and RIR.
    The first Chick born looked totally black, has feathers on its feet, but now that it's fluffy has some dark blonde/Light Red around its eyes and neck.
    The second, Is black on top and yellow on bottom.
    Anyway to figure out which hen is the mama?
    Both have feathered feet.

    Perhaps posting some pic's will help - you might have to wait till they feather out, sometimes the coloring changes as their feathers come in.
