This made me scratch my head. I don't know if my female read eared slider double clutched, I missed the cooter nest, or...if these guys could be hybrids. 🤔

Definitely a bit different looking. I would guess hybrids from what I see. Don't look like regular red-ear, but then neither did your "deformed" baby. Also don't look like "regular" cooters I've hatched. However, post some more pictures once a few more hatch and they've had a few days to straighten out and darken their markings. Head and neck shot would be great.

Love your updates and pictures!

Thanks man. And I thought so too when they darkened more. I thought it was Genetics because the mom is a hypo.
