I bought 7 Wheaton Maran eggs plus 7 Araucanas to put under my first time broody. I've never hatched (or even held) chicks before so we stumbled along but 11 hatched healthy and are running around and I was wondering the following;

a) what colour is the yellow Ara going to be? and will the 2 black and white ones be black or black and white?


and b) what breed are these bubs? The 3 yellows look like how I would expect a wheaton to look like but the ginger ones have thrown me.

The ones with the feathered legs,are a fair chance of being the Maran chicks,so the others,would have to be the Araucanas. :^

The wheaten will be FULL yellow as day olds ( if they are pure ;-) )
I can see a couple of Araucana and pick this by the heads .
As pointed out the FRENCH Marans should have feathering on the legs
