My second hatch ever! I hatched 21 out of 22 eggs. That last egg is still in the bator, but it looks odd upon candling, so I'm not holding out hope.

These are Chantecler and some mystery Chantecler crosses (hens were free range before I got them, and I started collecting eggs soon afterwards), plus one White Cornish in there somewhere from Schipperkesue.

The greyish ones are likely Splash Orpington crosses. I am calling them Chantingtons because it sounds fancy. I have already found them a new home with a friend, since I am a chicken snob and don't really want non-purebreds at this point. (Let's not talk about my two olive eggers because PRETTY EGGS.) Also, rehoming them is my first official act of CHICKEN ENABLING so now I am part of the club. Mwahahaha!

I suspect some of the yellow ones will end up being Buff or White Orpington crosses (again, free range mysteries!), but I won't know for sure until they get bigger. I will be on the look out for buff colouring and single combs!

I found the chanties are yellower then the orps, at least when side by side they seemed that way!! Lol

Soo cute!!! |And what a great hatch. You are tempting me. I have a hen that wants to go broody and I may just put a few eggs under her.

If the buff or whites are crossed with the Chants, don't expect the combs to help. Rolling Eyes Most of them will be flat combed.

MYSTERY CHICKENS! lol

Anything that end up non-white will be easy to pick out. I guess beyond that, look for the ones that aren't tightly feathered? Or are too large? I wanted to add size to my hens, but not necessarily like this ...

You should definitely hatch some more. I know a little birdie who wants some partridge hatching eggs next year ...

I think you are right, the fluff and shape should give them away!
I wouldn't mind some chicks now, they will be old enough before it gets too cold.

You two need to stop this love in, or I will be forced to use the MULTI QUOTE! (The Artist formerly known as 'Citation Multiple')

I saw two distinct colors in my white Cornish chicks. There were lighter and darker yellow ones. As they grow I will see if there is any color differences in the adults.

I definitely have a variety of shades of yellow. From buttery to BRIGHT.
