    OK, so there I was trying to incubate turkey eggs with my new LG and little did I know that my TOM was not yet fertile . . . even though he was doing his job.

    So after two batches of Turkey eggs with no luck, I threw in just a few more and also put in a chicken egg.

    Low and behold, the chick hatched! I was so excited because I had really just forgot about the chick egg.

    It was from a Red Star female and an Ameraucana Male.

    So, what egg laying abilities or coloring do you think this little chick will have if it's a hen?

    If it is a REAL ameraucana (if it's a hen) it will lay olive eggs, and be a good layer. [​IMG]
