ok this is kind of a rambling story but here goes. i sent a few OEGB eggs to my daughter's kindergarten classroom to be incubated along with some eggs from other students. i marked my eggs "W" for wheaten and "BW" for blue wheaten(actually eggs from my first cross of blue and wheaten). there were supposed to be some cochin eggs in there and some aracauna eggs and the others, i'm not sure about. at hatching the teacher didnt think to pay attention to the markings on my eggs so i'm a little unsure about which ones are my BW's. also i want to know what the ? chicks are, as i somehow ended up with all 11 that hatched. any help is really appreciated.

#1 defintely wheaten OEG


#2 maybe my BW cross


#3 maybe my BW cross


#4 maybe my BW cross


#5 aracauna?


#6 aracauna?

the ones you think are araucanas look like that to me. when mine were chicks they had those chipmunk-like stripes on their heads & backs. I don't know what they are for sure but they sure are cute!

i think you have to work on eliminantion. feather legs =cochin or cochin cross. yellow (possible black stripes on back) = wheaten, wheather it is blue or black. wild type markings (e+) = partridge bred black red or partridge. recessive wheaten is recessive to partridge. some look like eb, not that i have ever seen an eb in real life.

looks like you are going to have fun waiting till they grow up. by then you should know what your birds will produce.

PS look at the combs too. that little black fellow with the brown face has a pea/triple comb = arucana.
